In this second feature film, Pascal Plante follows an athlete who gives up her career and dreams of freedom. Katerine Savard, a former swimmer and Olympic medallist, uses grace and precision when playing a character thrown off course by melancholy, solitude, and disorientation.
At 23, Nadia makes the controversial decision to retire from professional swimming and rid herself of a life of sacrifice. After one last race, the hidden excesses of the Olympic Village will offer Nadia her first breath of freedom. But as she plunges into the unknown, doubts arise: who is she really?
