Alina, 20, plays in the first Ukrainian football league and hopes for a position in the national team. After her mother dies, however, she also has to look after her two little siblings, as her good-for-nothing stepfather does nothing but gamble away the social benefits. Together with her partner and grandmother, Alina tries to do justice to both. A doc-portrait of a passionate and strong young woman in the midst of difficult circumstances, without exhibition or embellishment, thus staying very close to her and her dreams.
