Synopsis

Vasyl is a ski jump coach from a children’s sports school. He lives and works in a small village, deep in the Carpathian Mountains. Three wives have left him, unable to understand his life-long devotion to sports and his connection with nature. Several times a year Vasyl ventures into the mountains to spend time in solitude. He believes that unity with nature gives him the strength to psychologically prepare his trainees for competitions, to cope with fear and self-doubt.
At the age of 70, he is trying to grow a new sports star, Zhenya. Immersed with the daily routine of training, my documentary would look into the complex process of preparation for competitions, where falling, disappointing and overcoming oneself is a daily, stressful process on the path to success.
