Vilde (12 ) wants to be the first female 'Halling' folk dance champion. A traditional dance for men only. Her greatest challenge is not the competition. But she is convinced that her strength and passion for dance and life will help her beloved grandfather to win his fight against cancer. A beautifully crafted portrait of two generations of sports champs and a affectionate bond between a grandfather and grandchild.
A series of 6 documentary films about talented kids who are dedicated to their sport at a serious level.

Through a child's perspective, each film tells exciting, dramatic and engaging real life stories from the world of sport with all the challenges it may bring, looking at the kid's relationships and issues like parental pressure, sacrifices, friendship and gender related issues. Shot in Japan, Russia, South Africa, Norway, Sweden and Denmark.
