This documentary follows Anna Gasser through her life as the most influential female athlete in the history of freestyle Snowboarding. What started as a late passion at the end of her teens, turned into an obsession to become the best in the sport, no matter what. Her background in gymnastics, combined with an immense inner drive and the unconditional support of her family, led to a quick progress and a skillset unseen at this time. Within the next couple of years this led her to various victories in the most elite competitions around the world, with the Olympic Gold Medal in PyeongChang 2018 being the highlight of her career. Now at age 27, she feels the pressure of the younger generation and also wants to develop her skillset in the backcountry and in the urban environment. Follow her through two intense seasons with various highs and lows, still willing to push the progression in the sport she loves so much.
