One summer in a Parisian suburb, time passes slowly for Marie, Anne and Floriane, whose paths cross at the local swimming pool. The blonde Floriane is the star of the synchronised swimming team, but her teammates hate her as much as the men and the boys love her. The outspoken Anne is in love with one of the male swimmers, while the introverted Marie has an eye for Floriane's curvaceous body. A painfully accurate portrait of three teenage girls, who each in their own way tackle their budding sexuality.
