What happens if the thing you're really good at isn't what you want to dedicate your life to? FENCER is a short film about having the courage to reject expectations set by talent. Our protagonist, Hayley, is the embodiment of the last-minute panic we all feel before important, life-changing events. A twenty-one year old junior at a prestigious East Coast university, Hayley Rubin is poised for a lifetime of success as a naturally gifted fencer. But not all is well days before a crucial, career-defining competition. As internal and external expectations mount, Hayley's self doubt manifests itself in a very real hand tremor, which may be her downfall.
