A young gamer called Bona has, since he was a small kid, been trying to find his way in the harsh world of e-sports and now under a professional contract. Bona is very talented in CS:GO, but his mental side fails him every time he is on the verge of success, always resulting in second place. Bona seeks help from the world’s best e-sports psychologist Mia. The sessions with her set him on a path to self discovery to become a better player – and a better person. Unexpectedly, another player – his old nemesis from the past – comes to take his position in the team. The mentorship between the psychologist and Bona is in the key role, while he must figure out how to balance the conflicts, burden of pressure and his own dreams before his professional contract runs out.
