Synopsis:

19-year-old Alessandra is a wrestling student. As a newbie, her first goal is to develop a so-called “gimmick” for herself: an artificial character similar to her for fighting in the ring. This film documents this development process, which at the same time represents an inner journey of self-discovery for Alessandra. But on her way to becoming a full-fledged wrestler, her life changes in unexpected ways, forcing her to grow up faster than expected.
