Melanie's life as a suburban housewife seems perfect. But on the inside of her fishbowl existence she yearns to reconnect with her workaholic husband and break out of her routine. Almost succeeding at hiding her disappointment over a forgotten anniversary, she buries herself in her daily tasks. But when a chance swims along to make an impulsive choice and find the companionship she’s been missing, Melanie surprises herself and takes the plunge.

A wonderful story about collaboration:
While creating the awesome new arrangement of the song 'Feeling Good' for the WINK sound track, the German band Kupfer! fell in love with the film and asked to use clips of it in their brand new music video, entitled 'Normalsein ist Wahnsinn' ('Being Normal is Insane').
