Based on a true story, PETITE REINE follows Julie, a young cycling star, two races away from winning the World Cup – her reward for years of intense training. Then Julie is denounced for doping. Alone and with no knowledge of the world outside the realm of racing, Julie must find a way out. The problem: while she has been ruthlessly manipulated by others, Julie is nevertheless guilty as charged.
