Toe to Toe tells the story of the friendship and rivalry between lacrosse mates Tosha and Jesse, two senior girls at a competitive Washington, D.C. prep school. Tosha (played by Sonequa Martin-Green of “Star Trek: Discovery" and "The Walking Dead") is a scholarship student from one of Washington's poorest neighborhoods. Jesse (played by Louisa Krause of "The Girlfriend Experience") is a rebellious, troubled girl from the ritzy suburbs of Maryland. The two forge a close and genuine bond on the lacrosse field but their friendship unravels as they navigate through gender, sexuality, race and class related obstacles. When Jesse and Tosha discover they've both been dating the same boy, their conflict becomes explosive. Toe to Toe is a powerful reminder that those who test us often make us better. Premiered in Dramatic Competition at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, distributed by Strand Releasing.
