2016 was the first year that women were invited to take part in the legendary Tour de Pologne race. The protagonists of the documentary are the female contestants from the MAT ATOM Deweloper racing team – created and led by Paulina Brzeźna-Bentkowska, the favorite of the race, for whom taking part in TdP is a fulfilment of a dream and the reason why she decided to prolong her athletic career. The film shows the world of professional athletes as seen by riders who struggle not only for the best possible performance, but also for the recognition of the sport that has been significantly dwarfed by men’s competitions.
