The stunning story of three women with very different attitudes and ambitions but very similar characters and drives as they battle life’s adversities to make their dreams come true.

Anna is a professional mountain guide, skilled at tackling ice and snow. Dot is a deep-sea and commercial diver who knows the deepest seas like the back of her hand; Lola is an athlete suffering from paralysis who is determined not to let her dreams and what makes her who she is die.

What brings them together is their drive, their thirst for adventure and their self-confidence (a vital tool to emerge in a male-dominated world), as well as water in all its forms (solid for Anna, liquid for Dot and both for Lola, who used to be an ice climber and then took to canoeing after her accident).

Three autobiographical stories featuring different adventures but similar experiences that constantly intertwine as they blend with sport, dreams, the will to fight and the ambitions of three special women.
