A young undocumented Guatemalan woman, Gabriela, dreams of swimming competitively. Her determination is curtailed by her over-protective mother, social propriety and self-judgment. The Maya director’s visually captivating work is a poetic reflection on identity and class divisions in the US – and the liberating power of water.
