Ronnie (Grace Glowicki) and Faye (Erin Carter) have been best friends forever. Ronnie’s brother — and Faye’s first love — Garrett has just died of cancer forcing both women to redefine their lives without him. For Ronnie, this means an epic drinking spree. For Faye, this means taking care of Ronnie. Trying to recover from their loss and grief, they decide to take off on a debaucherous adventure in the mountains in hopes of getting over the death of the man they both loved.

Suck It Up was awarded the Women In the Director’s Chair (WIDC) Feature Film Award, secured a broadcast license from Bell Media and significant private investments from The Harold Greenberg Fund and numerous others. It was shot in Invermere, B.C. and will have its World Premiere at the 2017 Slamdance Film Festival in Park City Utah.
