A talented 15-year-old gymnast is given the chance to leave her home in Ukraine to train for the Olympics at a prestigious sports centre in Switzerland. While she’s adapting to life in a new country, political revolt erupts in Kiev leaving her torn between her calling as a successful athlete and her loved ones back home.
‘This is a film whose ideas and emotions have come into a fierce new focus.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
‘The grim reality of geopolitics has conferred a horrible sense of urgency on this intense Swiss sporting drama.’
Kevin Maher, The Times

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
