The film brings together people who would not probably meet otherwise, and makes them move towards a common goal. This is a story about crossing the thresholds. In 2007, there was the beauty contest for finding the most beautiful disabled young woman in Estonia. The contest was held with the help of the „real“ beauty queens – Miss Estonia and Miss Tallinn 2007 Viktoria with their fellow contestants. The first part of the film introduces Leena and Triinu – two disabled young women preparing for the contest. However, the winner is 32-year-old Pille from Saaremaa island.
Pille's lifelong dream has been filmmaking – now she can start making her dreams come true. She is being helped by director Peeter Simm. The documentary ends with Pille's first 5-minute-long film titled „Mother and people around her“.
