Right before a decisive championship match, when the career of 17-year-old Sofia is about to take off, the talented volleyballer finds out she’s pregnant. Abortion laws in Brazil are very strict, and choices are few and harsh. Sofia conceals her pregnancy from her father, and applies for a prestigious volleyball scholarship. At the same time, she tries to arrange for an abortion in São Paulo. As the clock ticks, an extremist religious group finds her out and decides to prevent the abortion at all costs.
