Raise the bar

Guðjón Ragnarsson

A girls' basketball team aims to break down cultural barriers. Their training program is intense and controversial, and they are led by an overqualified and unusual coach who constantly raises the bar. The team achieves remarkable results and the girls are becoming strong, independent, and are ready to change the world. But is the world ready?
