Full of subtle humor, a sensual and striking story about finding your own way in life regardless of how bright and exciting a future your parents have planned for you. Tennis coach Maciej is travelling with his 17-year-old daughter Wiktoria around Poland's provincial tennis courts in the hope of turning her into a tennis star. The two are inseparable; they have been training together for twelve years. Wiktoria meticulously follows her dad’s routine: a strict diet, exhausting workouts, 100% focus, but she is growing tired of this and longs for some freedom. Soon Maciej will have to watch his own dreams and his daughter’s plans go separate ways.
