The Gamer


Since he was a child, a young gamer called Bona has been trying to make his way in the tough world of esports and now has a professional contract. Bona’s main talent is in CS:GO, but nerves fail 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 become a better player – and a better person.
