Blackwolf Run Golf Course, Wisconsin. Rising star, Golf Girl retraces the path of legendary golfer, Park SeRi’s historic 1998 US Women’s Open win. She and her dedicated father, Golf Dad, have toiled her whole life for this moment, maybe even killed. But bizarre encounters on the course tempt her to consider a life outside the only game she knows. Golf Girl is a quirky contemporary fairy tale that asks, what happens after the big win and is ruthless sacrifice a worthy price to pay for it?
