15 year-old Lyz, a high school student in the French Alps, has been accepted to a highly selective ski club whose aim is to train future professional athletes. Taking a chance on his new recruit, Fred, ex-champion turned coach, decides to make Lyz his shining star regardless of her lack of experience. Under his influence, Lyz will have to endure more than the physical and emotional pressure of the training. Young actress Noée Abita stars alongside the Jérémie Renier (The Child, The Promise) in this first feature by Charlène Favier. This impressive and courageous coming-of-age drama, directed with great confidence, marks Favier as one of most promising voices in French cinema.
