Seventeen-year-old Jenny lives in Ostia, a seaside town near Rome, and dreams of being a synchronized swimmer. But after her mother’s death and her father’s ensuing nervous breakdown, her family is forced to relocate to a remote mountain village, where Jenny drops out of school to work as a maid at a nearby ski resort and to support her younger brother. Sneaking into the hotel pool, she clings to some semblance of her dream, but with her father showing no sign of recovery, Jenny’s “temporary” circumstances appear increasingly permanent.
