Olga

In this intense sports film we meet the 15 year old Olga. A talented Ukrainian gymnast, who works hard to participate in the European Championships. The year is 2013 and life in Ukraine is starting to get worse. The Euromaidan uprising breaks out in Kiev, and suddenly her closest ones are involved. Her mother sends her to Switzerland, where the training continues. Olga tries to adapt to the new country, but the cultural differences and envious competitors make life difficult for the ambitious girl. This is a movie where sports meet politics. About the link between geographical and personal boundaries. And it gets worse when riots escalate in the home country, where Olga’s mother is and works as a journalist who reports on the protests.
