A young(ish) woman has fallen out of love with her own body. Committed to making a change, she sets herself the simple goal of swimming in open water at least once a month for a year. As she braves the elements throughout the seasons to swim in wild places she also begins to appreciate the quiet heroism of a female life and its body. A story about womanhood, miscarriage, healing, loving your own skin and freezing your bum off in cold water. Maybe life is indeed better when you wear a swimsuit.
