Sinopsis

Erez, a rising star in the Israeli swimming scene, arrives at a forgotten training camp held in a boarding school, where the one to win the competition gets a ticket to the Olympics. There he meets the beautiful and talented Nevo, who awakens subconscious desires in him. However, their swimming coach does not believe in friendship between competitors. Warned to stay away from Nevo, Erez is still too attracted to him; in between practices, he attempts to act upon his feelings and he understands that winning a medal is less important than winning Nevo’s heart.
