Marina is 19 years old and has been a competitive swimmer since childhood. When her friend Jana unexpectedly tells her that she is going to stop swimming, an important support in Marina’s life breaks away – alone now with the highest demands on herself, she doesn’t seem to leave the water at all. After hard weeks of training, she manages to qualify for the German championships. When she jumps into the pool after the starting gun for the decisive race, the water makes her feel light, almost weightless. Marina is with herself as never before, she dissolves.
