Filmed in slow motion, two women and a man (Paul Petroff) make human formations on the shoreline of the beach. A woman dressed in black swimwear runs towards Petroff and leaps into his arms. He holds her over his head before lowering her down. She gracefully arches back before circling outwards and balances herself against his weight where the two hold a pose.
