18 - Contains sexual violence, child sexual abuse theme.
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. When Fred takes advantage of their physical closeness during training and starts to cross several boundaries, Lyz is faced with increasingly difficult decisions. This powerful coming of age sports drama, seen through the gaze of its youthful protagonist, appears appropriately at a time when exploitative relationships in the sporting world have hit the headlines. Driven by the impressive performance of newcomer Noée Abita, this is a damning portrait of abuse.
