Twenty-year-old Lily Hevesh is a world-renowned domino toppler. Her domino designs have been featured in several commercials, on major television shows, and even in Hollywood movies. Her venture into domino art began at age nine when she started a YouTube Channel to post domino toppler videos. Now ten years later, she's amassed over three million subscribers and the adoration of celebrity fans including Hugh Jackman and Katy Perry. The film documents Lily's full-time entry into the domino art industry, following her from her freshman year of college through her decision to leave college to focus solely on pursuing her passion. Lily is the only female professional domino builder. In a niche industry dominated by men, she's set herself apart with her intricate setups, novel tricks, and precise, robust builds. As Lily's success increases, so do her confidence and determination to build a lifelong career out of her childhood pursuits. LILY TOPPLES THE WORLD is a coming-of-age documentary that portrays a young creator fulfilling childhood dreams through determination and creativity while maturing as an artist, role model, and young woman. — R.R.
