Deployed on a mission in Helmand, Afghanistan, 25-year-old Thomas is seriously injured when he steps on a landmine. As he recovers at a local rehabilitation center, he meets Sofie, an ascending ballerina from the Royal Danish Ballet, who is helping a relative regain strength after a long-term illness.

When Thomas, who desperately wants to be back in the field, becomes impatient with his slow healing process, Sofie offers to help him with a more intense rehabilitation plan. Despite their many differences, they develop a special bond and mutual affection.

Directed by Lisa Ohlin (Denmark, 2016). 105 min. In Danish with English subtitles.
