Steven was badly injured in a traffic accident, his physiotherapy sessions haven't been going well and he has grown depressed and despondent.

Keen to motivate him and make some progress his physiotherapist Caet decides to try some hydrotherapy in the pool.

But the first session goes badly, Steven can't move his leg and grows increasingly frustrated: 'It's not as if I'll ever swim around Ireland is it?'

But Caet has an idea to prove that Steven can do just that.

For every move or kick Steven makes they will travel ten kilometres around Ireland, plotting their progress on a map.

So begins an unusual journey of imagination and discovery as Steven and Caet set out to 'swim' around Ireland!
