Looking for another location?
Full of subtle humour, 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.
It’s a scorching hot summer. Maciej Kornet and his beloved daughter Wiktoria set out on another journey across Poland. They are up for a long series of tennis tournaments. The two have been training together for twelve years and are inseparable. Wiktoria meticulously follows her dad’s programme: a strict diet, exhausting workouts, 100% focus. She is growing tired of the routine and longs for some freedom. She thinks of quitting sports but is afraid to hurt her father’s feelings. This summer, Maciej’s new trainee Igor joins them on the tour. Wiktoria will find the secretive boy much more interesting than tennis, and Maciej will have to watch his own dreams and his daughter’s plans go separate ways.
