In the isolation of the Arctic Circle, Finland's worst cheerleading team is led by Miia, an ambitious coach who's tired of losing. To reverse the team's fortunes, Miia seeks inspiration by visiting the world champions in Texas to soak up their winning ways. Emboldened, her new approach pushes her Ice Queens teenage team to its breaking point. The strain reveals that the source of the girls' suffering lies much deeper than their lack of trophies.
