In Stella’s eyes, her elder sister Katya is a true star: she is the apple of their parents’ eye and a talented figure skater who spends her days practising the sport. When Katya’s dedication begins to resemble an obsession while she herself becomes emotionally distant, Stella is the first to find out her sister’s secret and realize its potentially dire consequences. She faces a difficult decision: reveal the secret to their parents in hope that it would avert the danger, or keep the promise to maintain silent which she unwillingly gave to her sister.
The young Swedish director, the graduate of the Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts, Sanna Lenken’s debut feature is an intriguing and sincere insight into a relationship between two sisters. It is an emphatically told story of how children are faced with life’s most difficult situations and their surprising ability to sometimes deal with them better than adults.
