‘Rookie’ follows the story of Ace, an awkward 6-footer teen who is forced to learn and play volleyball half-heartedly when the Catholic school she transferred to did not have a basketball team but her whole life eventually changes when she meets the team’s star player. 

‘Rookie’ is directed by Samantha Lee and written by Natts Jadaone. The sporty sapphic film will also have Filipino star volleyball players Alyssa Valdez, Tots Carlos, and Ara Galang making cameo appearances in the film. Up-and-coming superstar player Jelai Gajero is also set to join the movie although they have yet to appear in any of the teasers.

Lee is known for her sapphic films such as ‘Baka Bukas’ (2017), ‘Billie and Emma’ (2018), and the iWantTFC series ‘Sleep With Me’ (2022). 

‘Rookie’ will screen at the 2023 Cinemalaya Independent Philippine Film Festival from August 4 to August 13.

Stay tuned to BLTai for more updates on ‘Rookie.’
