Four adolescents outstanding athletes living at Israel's national sports Academy. On their quest for Olympic gold medal, they're facing a system that pushes them to the limits while they question whether their youth isn't being spent in vain. But even when they hit rock bottom, they fear of discovering that disillusionment from their dream will be much painful than striving for it.
