How would the fairy tale of Snow White look today? And what if the story was set in a gym? The fairy tale goes like this: A CrossFit trainer becomes the father of a baby girl, Snow White. After her mother dies, her father marries a young woman obsessed with CrossFit and herself. She works out constantly, wanting to be the best. And she really is – the young woman can do 50 burpees. Meanwhile, little Snow White grows up playing in the CrossFit gym. Time passes, and one day it turns out that while the Stepmother can do 50 burpees, Snow White can already do 53…

"Laila Pakalnina, one of the most productive Latvian directors returns to Vilnius Film Festival with her interpretation of the fairy tale of Snow White. The entire film is shot like a selfie, which helps underline the director's exploration of the overwhelming spread of narcissism today." (Mantė Valiūnaitė)
