The lonely and chubby Chantal (12) goes all out to get the money for new goggles for a swimming competition, but the thorny relationship with her family makes it hard.

Chantal, a chubby twelve-year-old girl, has trouble finding her way in life. At home, she can only lean on her stepfather, because she and her mother and stepbrother don’t get along. The only thing that rouses her is her great passion: swimming. When a big competition draws near, she needs new goggles. From then on, Chantal goes all out to get the money for diving goggles.
