Twitch streamer and video game speedrunner Narcissa Wright, known worldwide for beating The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in less than 19 minutes, faces an abrupt and utter collapse of her fanbase when she comes out as trans in 2015. As loving fans and global support are quickly replaced by angry transphobes and death threats, Narcissa becomes determined to win back her audience. She attempts to do so the best way she knows how: by breaking The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and setting a new speedrun record. As Narcissa streams her efforts and navigates a new relationship, she deals with burnout, online toxicity, LGBTQ issues, and rediscovering her own identity. An inspiring story, Break the Game is a “smartly paced, well-edited, sometimes maddening and saddening documentary,”–Matt Hudson, Bloody Awesome Movie Podcast–that will have you rooting for Narcissa’s success from the get-go.
