Striving to give the best to her two daughters, their mother manages their sports career in swimming, which at first seems highly promising. Coming from a complex family background herself, she is committed to provide the most supportive environment for her own daughters. The two teenage girls sacrifice everything in order to fulfill the expectations and achieve their dream: to win the Olympic Games. But as the pressure mounts, the task seems to be overwhelming, leading to stress, tense relations with the coach, and emotional and physical exhaustion. Faced with an alternative of quitting or plunging into a competetive world of sports, whose dreams are the film protagonists pursuing in reality?
