It tells the story of a young man Thomas, who lives an isolated life in a sports camp with his mother. His only contact with the outside world is through sport. The boy’s mother has high ambitions towards her son, which bring her into contact with trainer Frank. However, against the backdrop of Frank’s alternative approach, the mother’s authoritarian role begins to disappear.
