Breaking the Ice

International Feature Film Competition

Mira is the captain of a hockey team and views her life as a game she must win: helping her mother keep the family's failing winery, caring for her grandfather and searching for her brother who ran away from home. While she devotes all her time to her loved ones, her private life is sitting on the bench. Everything changes when a new forward joins the team. The innate ease of the lively Theresa quickly worms its way into Mira's heart. Will she be able to shed her armour and give herself fully to love? In her feature debut, Austrian director Clara Stern explores whether two people with radically different approaches to the world can be perfect together after all.
