A musical and visual film about Vilde, a charming 12-year-old girl with a talent for the physically-demanding Norwegian solo dance called halling. She lives in the middle of a forest in Gransherad, Telemark with her parents, brother, one horse, a donkey, two cats, and six goats. Vilde’s main goal now is the big Norwegian Championships called Landskappleik in Geilo 2014. But performance is not the most important thing; Vilde’s greatest wish is that her grandfather who has cancer will live as long as possible. She believes that her own force of nature and dance will help him to live longer than the doctors predicted.
