On the eve of a future-defining championship, promising Brazilian volleyball player Sofía (17) is faced with an unwanted pregnancy. Seeking an illegal termination, she becomes the target of a fundamentalist group determined to stop her at any cost – but neither Sofía nor those who love her are willing to surrender to the blind fervour of the swarm. A portrait of fervent, progressive youth in a country where conservative sectors still impose over women’s bodies, Power Alley was awarded a FIPRESCI prize at Cannes for its “compelling performances, vibrant editing, engaging music, and thrilling narrative (...) making the point that abortion rights are human rights."
