"You’re not a human being, you’re an athlete", 20-year-old Margarita is told by one of her two merciless coaches. She's preparing to represent Russia in rhythmic gymnastics at the Olympics in Brazil. The training is harsh, particularly in mental terms. However gracefully Rita catches rings or rolls a ball across her shoulders, her coaches expect more from her, time and again. Warmth and solace come in her scant free time, when she talks with her boyfriend on Skype or hangs out with her parents. This film shows how the Russian system for training athletes transgresses boundaries. The film focuses on Rita’s state of mind – she seems to be perpetually on the verge of tears.
