Synopsis
Unfolding against the backdrop of Ukraine’s violent Euromaidan protests in 2013, the story is about Olga, a 15-year-old gymnast exiled to Switzerland after her mother becomes a political target. Her efforts to gain a place on the Swiss national team to compete in the European Championships are persistently undermined by uncertainties relating to her mother and her home country. Featuring real footage of the revolution, Grappe delivers a poignant deliberation on identity, both on an individual and national level.
