Victoria Miller is a hard-working member of a Montreal swim team, who has been training six days a week for four years. That's what it takes to keep up with her teammate and rival, Svetlana. Most of the other swimmers are spurred on by their parents -- but not Victoria. In fact, her mother doesn't seem to be interested in much of anything these days, and her father has buried himself in work. When the family situation takes a grim turn, Victoria finds help -- in and out of the pool -- from the person she least expects.
