It’s 1936 and 19-year-old Nora Young is a multi-sport champion, brimming with trophies, talent and an indomitable zest for life. Breaking into the “weird and wonderful” world of men’s Six-Day bike racing, she seizes a rare opportunity to become one of few female cyclists to compete on a velodrome track “on the old speed saucer.” Combining animation, archival materials, and interviews with Young herself (age 95) telling her own story, UNDENIABLY YOUNG finally gives a groundbreaking, nearly forgotten athletic hero her rightful place in history.
