Taking the world by storm upon announcement with headlines from the LA Times,Teen Vogue, Forbes, The Daily Dot, and more, FENCE tells the story of 16-year-old Nicholas Cox, an outsider to the competitive fencing world.

A chance at a real team and a place to belong awaits him—if he can make the cut!
