Plot
28 youngsters between the ages of 10 and 18 at Amasya Wrestling Center/Boarding school dream to be (olympic, oil & folk) wrestling champions. “This film focuses on the friendship, triumphs and struggles of six 12-year olds: Baran, who has lost his mother and is brought up by his grandfather, and struggles with his weight; Harun, a serious contender for international championship who has broken his arm last year and is training with intense focus to catch up; Beytullah, very ambitious but his health problems stand in the way; Ümit is the joy of the group; Ahmet, the youngest champion in his age category who envies and at the same time looks up to his Olympic wrestler brother; and Muhammed, the social glue that holds them together and our guide through the film. They will find themselves in a new life and their main goal will be to complete their education and training successfully. They all want to be champions.” – Mete Gümürhan
