Synopsis: After her parent’s divorce, Tania, 14 years old, starts a new life when she arrives during the year in a new French middle school.

She has difficulties to face this sudden change, especially because in Finland she was used to training in a very welded team in a particular sport “hobby-horsing”. In France, at school, she brings only the loser’s attention on her: the chubby girl, her spotty friend and a lone and sex maniac boy.

And if it was her new team?

It’s a story about one's acceptance and the necessity to learn how to build oneself.

Nakon razvoda roditelja, četrnaestogodišnja Tania započinje novi život kad tokom godine stigne u novu francusku srednju školu.

Ima poteškoća da se suoči tom naglom promjenom, pogotovo jer je u Finskoj bila navikla trenirati u posebnom sportu „hobby-horsing“. U Francuskoj, u školi, na sebe privlači samo pažnju nepopularnih: jedne bucmaste djevojčice, njenog bubuljičastog prijatelja i usamljenog seks manijaka.

A da je to bio njen novi tim?

To je priča o nečijem prihvaćanju sebe i potrebi da naučimo kako se graditi.
