NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE

Maia (aka Zen) is a rowdy yet solitary 16-year-old tomboy and the only girl on the local ice hockey-team. She is constantly bullied by her teammates for her masculine attitude. When Vanessa – the beautiful and bewildered girlfriend of the team captain – runs away from home and hides in Maia’s family lodge, Maia feels free to trust someone for the first time. Led by the need to break away from the roles that the small community has forced them to play, Maia and Vanessa embark on a journey of self-discovery, an exploration of their gender identity and sexuality, liquid and restless like the troubled time of youth.
