As tensions rise and lives are on the line, Meg Kennedy is pinned between a rock and a hard place. She has no choice but to play along and hope that she makes it out alive, but then everything falls apart. And for her to live again, get her second chance at life, she may have to dance with death first.

Wise Girls is a moving story about a young woman looking to escape her past and find a new life. The bonds of friendship, love, and strength echo deep within this tale as strong women are portrayed by talented actresses, who are put to the ultimate test. The darkest moments surrounded by Meg pull us in further, and with every twist and turn, we are carried forward to the end. And thebonds made are bonds never to be broken, and the movie is inspiration to how our darkest moments redefine who we are and who we will become.
