In this film the swimming pool is a place of humble charm. A summer day breaks on the coast and swimming instructor Esteban, an introverted ex-professional swimmer, waits for his four young pupils to arrive. They have one thing in common: their disabilities make them all outsiders. One-legged Diana is flirty and possessive; Dany is overweight and has Down syndrome; weak-willed Rodrigo has a walking disability; and permanently grumpy Oscar flatly refuses to speak.
