Erik takes swimming lessons. His father, a former swimming champion, has high hopes for his son. But Eryk does not like swimming at all. He much prefers gaming. In his online game, he is Polska Warrior, the undisputed champion who can take on the whole world. In the swimming pool and his real life, Eryk struggles with the expectations others hold of him. Gaming allows him an escape, until he can no longer escape and has to face his fears. He then shows he can also be a true hero in real life.

A moving, funny, and thrilling animation for all children who can sometimes be heroes, but often cannot.
