A swimming pool, interior, daytime. Twelve women and men are striving for the same goal, one which is closed off to the outside world. With precise strokes, they manoeuver themselves into position, ready to dive into their underwater empire. The film takes off on an adventure to the bottom of this 3.8 meter deep playground.
