Stack Magazine said 'Going for Gold is a real feel-good Aussie flick that shows off the beauty of our country. It's Bring It On meets Stick It meets Step Up, and young lovers of dance and sport will find plenty to enjoy in this film. It's about embracing our differences and celebrating what makes us unique, and the cast look as though they're genuinely having a great time the whole way through."
Seventeen-year-old Emma Wilson (Kelli Berglund) moves from the USA to Australia with her Air Force officer father.
At her new high school, she befriends Hannah Thompson (Emily Morris) and together they join forces to form a competitive cheerleading squad. They recruit an unlikely team of girls and guys, drawn from a wide variety of sports including gymnastics, dance, soccer and AFL.
When the team signs up for the state championships, they soon find themselves up against the reigning champions, led by the devious Charlotte. Can this unlikely cheer squad beat the odds in their quest to win the state champs and
go all the way to the nationals?
With the stakes this high, they'll get just one chance of going for gold.
