Bibian takes you with her on a personal adventure in which she gets ready for the Olympic games (Salt Lake city 2002) but gets faces with an aggressive form of bone cancer. Doctors and family feared for her life, but the main question for Bibian was when she could snowboard again.
This was faster than predicted: against all the medical advice Bibian snowboarded down the slopes on one leg, seven months later she became Dutch champion. The cancer came back four times. Bibian became a loving mom and divorced her partner. Something that would be too much to handle for most people, became a driving force for Bibian to achieve her goal.
