Set in 1983 Czechoslovakia, eighteen-year-old sprinter Anna dreams of making the Olympics. In preparation, her coach puts her on a secret “special care” program, through which she receives injections of stromba. After learning that stromba is a dangerous drug, Anna rejects the injections and her performance levels begin to decline. With the Olympics in jeopardy, Anna’s mother decides to secretly administer the drug to her daughter in order for her to have a chance not only for the Olympics but also to escape from behind the Iron Curtain.
