After a life of relentless self-discipline as a champion swimmer, Barbara tries to adjust to "civilian" life. She marries and begins working at a textile factory. Her dedication to perfection drives away her new husband, infuriates her co-workers, and puts her life in quite a bind. Nonetheless, she remains true to herself and by the end of the film has had a divorce and has also begun a swimming program for young people, sponsored by her factory and taking place in the factory's newly made swimming pool.
