Victoria’s Foil follows 22-year-old Victoria Isaacson, a Paralympic fencer, as she trains day in and day out to achieve her dreams while working a full-time job at a horse ranch to sustain the increasing burden of debt that comes with Olympic aspirations. All of this comes to a crashing halt when the COVID-19 pandemic causes the cancellation of her final wheelchair fencing qualifiers.
