Layla and K-Frost are two Black teens from a south London council estate. After enrolling in a community program designed for young adults with disadvantaged backgrounds, they soon learn that they must face their ultimate fear, the water, to complete it. They find a mentor in Frank, a new swimmer who has recently overcome his own personal barriers. Fuelled by true testimonies, this deeply thought-provoking film tackles the age-old myth that Black people can't swim head-on. It travels to the very root of this racial prejudice and begs the question of why?
