Do you believe in God? - A question that the 19-year-old Mirjam keeps asking herself. Mirjam is the reigning world champion in disco and freestyle dance and a committed member of the free church Friheten, led by her preacher stepfather. When she collapses on the dance floor during a championship, she begins doubting both herself and her faith. Looking for answers, she decides to join a summer camp led by a more conservative Christian congregation.
