The story centers around fifteen-year-old Alex, the only girl in a boy’s ice hockey team. She was raised by her dad Michal, who is also a coach of the team. Their relationship misses the real connection: to each other they are more like “a player and a coach” than “a daughter and a father”.
Alex is one of the best players in the team, and the guys treat her as one of them. However, she faces difficulties when she wants Daniel, one of her team mates, to see her not only as a friend, but also as a girl. After she sees Daniel kissing her more “feminine” school friend Simona, Alex feels being betrayed. Anger grows inside her and starts causing problems in her life. She loses important game and also trust of her team. This failure, however, turns her dad’s attention to her, and there lies a path to their real connection. Thanks to him, Alex understands that men’s world can be not only about tough sports and ambitions, but also about love, which you can’t conquer.
