Ellen Fiske, Ellinor Hallin — SwedenScotland — 2019 — 89'
Scrappy Scottish teenager Gemma has never backed down from a fight. That was the way of life in the small-town, low-income housing scheme where she grew up, southeast of Glasgow. As Gemma used to say, scheme birds either get „locked up or knocked up”, so perhaps her path is set. But her grandfather, who raised her from infancy, won’t accept that. Doing all he can to channel her energy away from the streets, he opens a boxing gym that he converts once a week into a pigeon show.
