    • Synopsis
    • Watermarks is the story of the champion women swimmers of the legendary Jewish sports club, Hakoah Vienna. Although world champions, they were stripped of their medals when they refused to represent Austria in the 1936 Berlin Olympics. The swimmers managed to flee the country before the war broke out. 65 years later the director meets the women in their homes around the world, and arranges for a reunion in their old swimming pool in Vienna.
