Tweener follows 13-year old wrestler Jaana and her best friend Bettan. Jaana’s goal is to advance to the more experienced group, and they are well on their way. But suddenly their relationship changes, as Bettan starts focusing more on life outside the wrestling club. Jaana has to choose between following her best friend or following her own goals. Tweener is a film for anyone who has ever felt as if they’d burst from feeling too much. The wrestling mat is a space where the feelings can be let out.
