A stubborn girl finds the unlikely solution to all her problems in an all-male religious ritual.


A misfit, 18-year-old Aneta, is bullied at school for her feelings towards female friend and for her tomboy attitude. As any teenager, her life revolves around her mobile phone. In one of the incidents, her phone was tossed off the bus and crashed. In order to get a new one and solve a problem of a broken TV at home, Aneta decides to confront the local priest to let her participate in a centuries-old all-male church ritual of retrieving a cross from the river. The winner of the ritual will receive a brand new mobile phone and a TV set. If allowed, she will have to compete against the same bullies that harass her.
