Preceded by the short film Wax Paul Now

After a disappointing finish in her event at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, young cross-country skier Penelope finds herself drifting without purpose. She quickly befriends Ezra, a volunteer dentist for the Olympic Village who is maneuvering a reluctant break from his fiancée back in the US. The two embark on an adventurous, yet time-sensitive relationship that highlights the value of human connection, however brief. The first narrative feature ever shot in a real Olympic Athlete Village, this film explores the interconnectedness of love and loneliness through the lenses of two strangers navigating the unknown.
