Every year, thousands of people attempt a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail, but only 1 in 4 will be successful. Of those who are successful, just 25% are women. THRU follows women attempting a 2016 thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail and discovering what it takes to become “the 25% of the 25%”. Told from a third person perspective (a unique deviation from most first person perspective hiking documentaries), THRU explores the everyday struggles any thru-hiker faces as well as what it means to be a woman on and off the trail.

Off the trail society, especially as portrayed by the media, has high expectations for physical beauty while having low expectations for physical capability when it comes to women. However, on the trail these expectations are inverted. THRU hopes to highlight this inversion and send a positive and powerful message to women, “You can challenge yourself to do so much more than the world expects of you.” Navigating THRU inspires women of all ages to be adventurous, self-reliant, and confident in both physically demanding situations and everyday life.
