The Together Project

Samir wants to make up for his past transgressions toward his swimming instructor Agathe, whom he’s madly in love with, and he follows her all the way to Iceland. But when an electric shock leaves him with amnesia, how can he make up for what he can’t remember? Can Agathe help him reclaim his memories – and his love for her?
