Zebiba wants to be a champion weightlifter. Working with Captain Ramadan who trained his own daughter to be a champion, Zebiba slowly her works her way toward being the best.
Following Zebiba over 4 years the film gives us a wonderful slice of life for a young athlete. We are charmed by our heroine and the people around her and we watch how even as she chases her dream of glory she never stops being a young woman. I was entranced.
While this is not going to be all and end all documentary of the year or the festival it is still a small gem and a winner that is worth your time.
