Vincent Lindon (Mademoiselle Chambon) stars in this story of a 17-year-old Kurdish refugee from Afghanistan trying to reunite with his recently emigred girlfriend in England. After struggling his way through Europe for three months, his journey comes to an abrupt halt when authorities on the French side of the English Channel stop him. Left with no other alternatives, he decides to swim across the Channel, going to the local swimming pool to train. There he meets a middle-aged swimming instructor (Lindon) in turmoil over his imminent divorce. Hoping to win back the affection of his wife, who does volunteer work helping immigrants, he decides to help the Afghan teen. What begins as a relationship based on self-interest develops into something much bigger.
