Synopsis:

When the young and promising badminton player Annbritt loses the Swedish championship finals in 1983, her life collapses. Although convinced that the loss was based on an incorrect judicial decision, she can’t get over the defeat - not even today, almost forty years later. Annbritt is now an alcoholic and unemployed. She spends most of her days socializing with her eccentric son Mattias, who is awaiting her comeback. But will this ever happen?
