Sensitively handled coming of age tale revolving around three 15-year-old girls on the cusp of sexual awakening, whose fates intersect at the swimming baths in their tranquil suburb of Paris. Physically awkward Marie is alienated from most of the people around her, and is painfully aware that her body is not developing at the same speed as her chubby and insecure friend Anne. While Marie wrestles with a secret attraction to Floriane, the beautiful captain of the girls' synchronized swimming team, Anne harbours her own crush - on Floriane's hunky boyfriend.
