Twenty-year-old Niko spends his days in the anonymous gym of a sports centre, where his willpower is soon noticed by a personal trainer. Although they see each other every day, their contact remains limited and indifferent. This changes when Niko makes considerable progress and the two get caught up in a power struggle. Black-and-white film full of calm, intently moving bodies, about a boy who is completely absorbed in his longing for self-assurance.
