When a boy’s sense of magic is tarnished by an encounter with bullies at a pool, only one brave act can remind him that the magic's been inside him all along.
As a child Eric believed that the water was magical. In the water there was nothing he couldn’t do. But a life-changing encounter with bullies at a pool plants seeds of self-doubt. Still haunted by the experience as an adult, Eric decides that the only way to take back control over his life is to get back into the water. If he can face his fears 30-feet above the water, then he'll rediscover his magic--and realize he's had the power to conquer his fears all along.
