Fighting with my family 

Born into a tight-knit wrestling family, Paige and her brother Zak are ecstatic when they get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to try out for the WWE. But when only Paige earns a spot in the competitive training program, she must leave her loved ones behind and face this new cutthroat world alone. Paige's journey pushes her to dig deep and ultimately prove to the world that what makes her different is the very thing that can make her a star.

Daffodils

Daffodils is a New Zealand biographical musical drama film directed by David Stubbs. It stars Rose McIver and George Mason. Based on the award-winning New Zealand stage play inspired by a true story, the film follows an indie musician who, after being told by her father on his death bed, recounts her parents’ bittersweet romance.

Destroyer 

As a young cop, Erin Bell went under cover to infiltrate a gang in the California desert -- with tragic results. Bell continues to work as a detective for the Los Angeles Police Department, but feelings of anger and remorse leave her worn-down and consumed by guilt. When the leader of that gang suddenly re-emerges, Erin embarks on an obsessive quest to find his former associates, bring him to justice and make peace with her tortured past.
