Ten-year-old Giovanni will have nothing to do with karate or soccer. Synchro­nised swim­ming; that is his sport. As the only boy on the team, he feels quite at home in a world full of agile and beau­ti­fully adorned girls. For four years now, Giovanni has dreamt of partic­i­pating in the Dutch synchro­nised swim­ming cham­pi­onships. This dream is now within reach; he only has to pass one last impor­tant exam. Backed by stir­ring music, the docu­men­tary shows Giovanni’s stren­uous prepa­ra­tions for the exam and disarming conver­sa­tions with his sweet­heart Kim, who supports him through thick and thin.
