How to tell Gunshots from Fireworks

Film synopsis

The story of gifted German runner Melat Kejeta is told through exclusive footage of her preparations for the 2021 Olympics in this experimental portrait documentary about a young refugee who has become a world-class athlete. To achieve her goal of a podium finish at the most important race of her life, she must defy both physical and mental adversity at the training camp in Kenya, just a stone’s throw away from the country she had to flee from nine years ago.
