Slalom

Slalom

Greek premiere

Lyz, aged 15, makes it to the skiing team of a prestigious high-school, coached by a Machiavellian trainer. While pursuing victories, Lyz is drained of her innocence, lured by false dreams of glory. When the forbidden line is crossed, she finds herself entangled between her adolescent desire to be loved and the dawning that she fell victim to a deranged mind. A somber immersion into the breeding ground of young champions that explores the mechanisms of manipulation and toxic competition.
