The Other Girl

Emma, 16, a young hockey prodigy, lives alone with her grandmother in a remote village of Valais, Switzerland. She has a dream: to leave this godforsaken hole and go to Zurich to join the national hockey team.

A 16-year-old hockey prodigy from a remote village up in the Swiss Alps is thrown off her course to become a hockey star in Zürich when a strange liquid starts flowing out from her navel and morphs into a perfect replica of herself.

To reach her goal of finally leaving the valley she must hide the erratic comings and goings of her doppelgänger and unmask those responsible for its existence.

Late in the first season we find out that Emma is not the only girl going through these extraordinary transformations. She will fight another mutant girl who has let her powers lead her towards a more evil side of her persona.

In the season finale and in the seasons to come we find out that a dozen other girls also deal with powers, curses and revolving around self and belonging.
