Teenage Alex is the only girl in a boys’ ice-hockey team. Her dad Michal, who raised her alone, is the team’s coach. He treats Alex like one of the players, both on the ice and at home. Alex herself resembles a guy - with her short haircut, with body, affected by years of tough training and with her boyish behaviour. She is a tough player, rather than a young woman or a daughter, and her surroundings treat her according to that.
