Since being a child, 17-year-old Bona has been trying to find his way in the harsh world of esports, now under a professional contract. Bona is very talented in CS:GO, but his mental side fails him every time he is on the verge of success, always resulting in second place. Bona seeks help from the world's best esports psychologist, Mia. The sessions with her set him on a path to self discovery to not only become a better player, but a better person. Unexpectedly, another player and old nemesis from the past, comes to take his position in the team. The mentorship between the psychologist and Bona is in the key role, as he figures out how to balance the conflicts, the pressure and his own dreams before his professional contract runs out.
