Twelve-year-old Amelie is a gifted athlete whose ability quickly attracts both attention and jealousy. When the jealousy turns to bullying, Amelie decides to change schools in order to escape.

When it seems that she will have to confront her former tormentors in an extramural basketball match, Amelie's re-emerging self-confidence takes a dive.
