LEAH is a PhD.D. student in Immunology. She has devoted her life to science and is determined to develop new treatments and cures for cancer. SAMUEL is a remarkably talented upcoming actor. One morning, Samuel is offered the opportunity of his lifetime: The lead role in a studio film.
While celebrating, Samuel dares his best friend to a swimming contest in the ocean. Drunk and overpowered by waves, Samuel is pushed against the pylons of the Santa Monica Pier and suffers a concussion. As Samuel drowns, Leah jumps into the water and rescues him.
One month later, Leah is unable to take a shower. She has developed a fear of water that is gradually taking over her life.

As days go by and they continue to spend time together, their feelings for each other only intensify, despite Leah’s skepticism and effort to ignore them.
As Leah’s fear of water continues to worsen, and her career and her sanity are at stake, she gradually discovers that her saving Samuel was not a coincidence, and that she and Samuel share an incredible past that, thanks to the accident, both are now beginning to remember…
