Watermarks is the intriguing story of the legendary Jewish Sport Club, Hakoah Vienna, formed in 1909 and destroyed by the Nazis in March, 1938. Director Yaron Zilberman tells the story through the eyes of seven women, aged 81-85, all former champion swimmers at the club, who tell their individual stories from their current home environments, located across three continents; then, they return, as a group, to Vienna, the City of Dreams they were once forced to flee. In this journey they evoke and relive their youth, early femininity, lost memories, and lifelong bonds.
