72-year-old Gertie only has one joy left, swimming. Gertie swims daily in her retirement home pool, regardless of what obstacles come her way. Her passion is put to the test when her doctor tells her that she has an STD, and that the chlorine in the water prevents her from being in the pool. Gertie refuses to adhere to her doctor's requests, making it clear that she cares more about swimming than her health. Gertie's stubbornness results in an ongoing battle between her and her doctor. Who will win? Will Gertie be permitted to swim or will her doctor be forced to take extreme measures?
