'You have a top-notch motivation, that has always been one of your stronger
assets,' he said. 'But you can't play sports at top level like this.' The school
principal didn't even look at her as he addressed her. 'We have to think
about your healing process. It's better if you don't finish the year.' Evi swallowed. She didn't want to hear this. Was he serious? She couldn't miss
swimming - not for an entire school year.
Due to an injury, Evi has to take a break from her sports studies. She decides to take a tempory job at the local pool, where she meets a sexy water polo
player - and the attraction between them is obvious from the start. That's why Evi doesn't understand why Mick keeps her at arm's length....
What should have been a great evening out ends up like nightmare for Steven. He is falsely accused of rape on Facebook. The power of social media
wreaks havoc on his life and before he knows it, he is a pariah in his own town. How can he pick up his life from here? Two people struggling with pain they'd rather not show. Two lives that collide in unexpected ways.
