The tale of the consuming ambition of a daughter who must win. An intimate portrait of a fencing champion filmed over 10 years.

Nathalie had a dream since childhood: a gold medal in fencing. A consuming ambition that merges with obsession. An accomplice father and demanding life master who pushes her to try any path to victory. A legendary coach. Three Olympic Games with two different flags. 10 years of challenges, many defeats and few victories.
Nathalie trains obsessively, attends competitions around the world, follows gurus and propitiatory ceremonies. She marries a TV chef. She builds a winning, hyper-performing public persona.
Glamorous evenings in Paris, bourgeois lunches in Milan, TV interviews in Rio de Janeiro.
Moments of despair and the desire to drop everything.
Upset by the sudden death of her father, Nathalie continues an inner dialogue with him, once again seeking his help to win.

Touché is a story about the tenacity and determination of a young woman ready to do anything to achieve her goals. A story of sports at the highest level, spanning three Olympics: London, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo. A universal story for an international audience of different generations. 

Nathalie is a widely followed figure, especially on social media, in her adopted homeland of Brazil and the rest of the world. Her notoriety may contribute to the promotion and dissemination of the film.

Nathalie will be one of the stars of the next Olympics to be held in her home country: Paris 2024.
