The Domestique (2019)
Former pro cyclist Kim Karlsen (39) is on live TV holding a press conference to admit extensive us of doping during her career. This satirical drama gives us a view behind the scenes of this doping scandal, and we follow Kim while she tackles her fall from grace like a sinking ship that refuses to go under. Rather than accepting the consequences of her actions, she sticks to her guns and refuses to alter her mindset. Her approach doesn’t go so well, and it will be her annus horribilis.
