A funny and ruthless dive into the world of sports that resonates with the story of a youthful passion, the journey of a young man in search of thrills, intensity and excitement. Larie is a teenager with a passion for swimming.
In the wake of his idol, Michael Phelps, he dreams of a record, victory, a medal. Under the guidance of his coach, he spares nothing: the discovery of skiing, his relationship to water, training and violence, competition and the strangeness of his rituals, races, defeats, the questioning… But one day, the stopwatch becomes merciless. The teenager finds himself alone on the edge of the pool. It is also the story of Maxime Taffanel, high level swimmer turned actor, the story of his fishy body turned into a stage body. He brilliantly and authentically embodies this passionate, vulnerable and fallen young champion and all the characters who punctuate his breathless story. His play, all in finesse, is based on a perfectly mastered gestural composition, a dense and romantic writing, between joy and doubt, between laughter and tears, and a moving sincerity.
