A desolate, cluttered square somewhere in the outskirts of Alexandria, is used by teenage Zebiba to practice for the Olympics. Instead of a well-equipped sports hall, it is among dusted containers, rusty pipes and dilapidated ceilings that the girl lifts weights. Her older friends, who are admired champions today, trained in the same conditions. If it had not been for enormous determination, faith in their own exceptional abilities and a demanding trainer, none of them would have had a chance for success. Will Zebiba be able to achieve it, too?
