When 9-year-old Daan discovers his mother’s old medals in the attic, it ignites his passion for swimming. But when his teacher encourages him to enter into competitions, fear strikes his mother’s heart. She doesn’t want Daan to start training before it’s determined whether he shares her heart defect. But Daan can’t wait that long, and with his dad’s help goes to work achieving his dream: entering into the Children’s Olympics. But will his mother agree?
