Description:

Living, learning, suffering for their passion: the 26 boys living at a sports academy in the Turkish province of Amasya will endure a lot to fulfill their wrestling dreams.

The observational camera remains unobtrusive while still allowing us to experience the boys' everyday life on the verge between camaraderie and competition.
