Additional Information

David could be fine: His parents are well-to-do, his marks are good and his girlfriend is the envy of the other boys. Were it not for his new ice hockey team “The Wolves”, where he plays as a goalkeeper. His father has ambitious plans and wants David to become a professional player despite his diabetes. But he is treated as “the newcomer” in the team. The team captain, his brutal buddy Miky and class clown Bob bully him in the changing room, on the internet and even at ballroom dancing classes. David's performance gets worse, his illness increasingly becomes a problem and even his girlfriend prefers to throw herself at Miky. His professional career seems to be over, which mainly his father cannot accept. David's mother, on the other hand, can no longer bear the way her son is treated in the team. When she talks to the coach, he punishes the team with hours of endurance exercises until the players throw up. The situation threatens to escalate.
