Sinopsis de la película: Aventurera, competidora, hija, amiga, pionera y heroína. Estas, y más, son todas las palabras usadas para describir a la kayakista francesa, Nouria Newman. Aquí, Nouria se prepara para convertirse en la primera mujer en kayakear una cascada de 30 metros, mientras repasamos su transformación de ser una joven y entusiasta aspirante olímpica a convertirse en una de las mejores kayakistas de todos los tiempos.

Adventurer, competitor, daughter, friend, pioneer, hero, and badass human are all words used to describe French kayaker, Nouria Newman. In Wild Waters, we follow Nouria as she prepares to become the first female to run a 100-foot (30 m) waterfall; we watch her grow from a young, keen Olympic hopeful to one of the greatest kayakers of all times – male or female. However, running some of the world’s hardest whitewater isn’t Nouria’s biggest life challenge. Realizing that the expectations placed upon her as both an athlete and as a woman weight heavily on her decisions and ambitions, she pushes back to make her own path. It is this central aspect of her life – this refusal to conform to others’ expectations – where Nouria is able to use kayaking as a way to transform into her truest self and become a once-in-a-generation kayaker.
