At sports boarding school, Ava, 12, has been a gymnast as long as she can remember. Her mother introduced her to gymnastics at an early age. But when, one day, her mother unexpectedly dies everything changes. Driven by the hope that gymnastics might bring her closer to her mother and dull the pain, Ava trains harder than ever.
