Top-flight competitive sports only have winners and losers. Nonetheless, does the decision to leave a world of constant grind automatically indicate capitulation? A young swimmer's participation in the Olympic Games signals the last competition of her career, but what goes on around her becomes the backdrop for a much bigger battle. In Pascal Plante’s second film – an intimate, subtle drama about suppressed emotions rather than performance itself – he entrusted the main roles to professional athletes.
