Mira is the captain of the local hockey team. She is forced to run her late grandmother’s farm because her grandfather is severely ill. Her mother and brother have a hostile relationship where she feels the need to mediate. When Theresa joins the team, the world that Mira has built with great difficulty seems to fall apart...Clara Stern’s debut film is a coming-of-age story which teaches us that you can lose the balance in your life and find it again in a different form, closer to the idea of who you think you are.
