Victoria’s Foil tells the story of 22-year-old wheelchair fencer Victoria Isaacson on a multi-year journey to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics. She competes not only against her opponents, but a life-altering disease, mounting debt, and eventually, the coronavirus pandemic.
More About the Program
Victoria suffers from what she calls a hidden disability, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a rare genetic disease that affects her connective tissues.
The documentary touches upon her self-doubt, as she begins to rely on her wheelchair more often. We also follow her hopes and dreams of leaving a mark in the athletic world when she thought that she would no longer be able to live a normal life.
