15-year-old Hemi's relationship with his conservative father is becoming increasingly difficult. His father wants Hemi to become a professional swimmer, but he feels increasingly constrained in this predefined role. When he finally dares to break out of these conservative patterns, he attends a dance class – and has an encounter that enables him to discover a whole new side of his personality. GENETICA depicts a young man’s search for his own identity against the backdrop of predefined social roles and the strict ideas of his parents.
