Cathay Cineplex describes the movie as:

After his first appearance on the competitive world stage, Haruka is held captive by the swimming of the unmistakable champion, Albert, and feels like he’s lost his way.

“What do you swim for?”

With the current state of things, his swimming and what the water means to him are called into question.
Haruka begins to sink to the bottom of the murky water as he struggles on his own.

Pushed on by a restless urge in his heart, Haruka purposefully puts himself through a rigorous and intensive training regiment, relentlessly devoting himself to practice.
In his heart, Haruka knows that he’s pushing himself beyond his limits both physically and mentally.
His friends can do nothing but watch over and have faith in him.
