Storyline

Thirty four year old Goyo, a former open water swimming champion, has been hiding out in the desert. Wrongly accused of doping in the Santa Fe-Coronda Marathon, a 57 kilometer river swim, he has abandoned his career and his dreams. Eight years later, Goyo returns to Santa Fe where the marathon will be held again to try to re-gain his title and clear his name. However, long buried emotions come back to haunt him. He meets Chino, a stubborn and disciplined pool swimmer, who tries hard to be selected for the national team, but fails. Identifying with Chino, Goyo asks him to be his guide on the boat that follows him during the marathon. Written by Veronica Chen

Gorgeous. Pure cinema. One of the best films in Argentine Cinema in the past 20 years. Its vision reflects the maturity of an author. With AGUA Argentine Cinema begins to be written in capital letters. Far from its previous naturalism and "poor cinema" we enter a domain which belongs to cinema alone. A revolutionary approach on filming. No conventionalisms from beginning to end. Luxurious in image. Construction of sound incredible. The narration brings the two principal characters together by a crash, and this will mark forever a so subtle relationship where more and more they dive into a world of solitude, but exhibiting their skin as metaphor. A film that is a universal must!
