  • With the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games, and all that she has been training for, looming large, 18-year-old sprinter Anna (Judit Bardós) is placed on a state-run “programme of specialised care” to ensure success on the grandest of stages.

    Upon realising that this involves participation in an illegal doping regimen, Anna and her mother (the excellent Anna Geislerová) become divided over what's more important: success or failure on one's own terms and merits, or pursuing a better life away from stifling, Normalisation-era Czechoslovakia.
