Woolf Women is a true account of Jenny and her 4 friends who accept a challenge to go to Sumela – an ancient monastery built in AD386. It clings precariously to a vertical rock face with a terrifying sheer drop of 1,280 metres and is located deep in the Pontic mountains of Turkey.
Jenny has been struggling to get over the unexpected and sudden loss of her father. Her friends are worried about her welfare and state of mind. Her depression has already led to her losing her job and as a result she gives up her home to go live in her van and skate professionally full-time. In order to seek solace and distraction, she plans and dreams of an adventurous skateboard expedition with her friends.
Upon meeting Marchella, the expedition becomes a reality and the girls make it their mission to go to Sumela, with the hope that Jenny finds closure and they can become the first ever Downhill Skateboarders to skate from Sumela. However, shortly before their departure, Jenny meets with another major unexpected calamity.
Woolf Women is a film about personal courage, friendship, adventure and duct tape. It is a testimony to the words – belief and determination. Young, free spirited and athletic - the girls cruise by road for over 5,500 kms each way into uncharted waters to reach Sumela.
