A girl tries to attune her breathing to the movement of her bow. Arrow after arrow. Her instructor counsels her to stay calm, to maintain her concentration during the training; she is too tense. But what he doesn't know is the reason behind her nervousness; the girl has a secret plan, a raging dream she wants to transform into reality. Behind her sporting talent, in a sanitised discipline that has been reduced to the pull and release of the arrow, is hidden her need to retrieve a primitive, violent instinct.
