Zuzia is twelve and she’s been training as an equestrian vaulter for several years. Because of her age and build, she’s lifted by her older and stronger colleagues. She’s the ‘top mounter’, the capstone crowning their human pyramid. A new, intensive season begins. During a training session, it turns out that the moves she’s involved in lack grace and lightness. She’s grown and, in the end, the older team members admit that they don’t have the strength to lift her any more. She’s going to have to find a new role within the group.
