While taking photographs for her high school yearbook, Anne (Dylan Gelula, UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT) begins to develop feelings for star softball player, Sasha (Brianna Hildebrand, DEADPOOL). Using the excuse of a yearbook interview, Anne reaches out to her, and the two girls quickly form an intimate friendship. As Anne struggles with coming out to her best friend Clifton, both she and Sasha are faced with setbacks as they continue to explore their feelings. Although Anne seems ready to embrace her identity, Sasha is not. Determined to make it work, Anne tries to help Sasha navigate the difficult terrain associated with being a popular athlete who is afraid to be true to herself.
Soulfully captured, FIRST GIRL I LOVED explores an array of emotions with a delicate, invigorating, cinematic vision. The unusual, non-sequential structure illustrates how the characters (like all of us) perceive and remember a common experience very differently, while thinking that they alone know the truth.
