Systema follows the Israeli Synchronized Swimming team, focusing on the dynamics between the individual and the group. Eva is a member of the team, who at the age of 6 immigrated with her family to Israel from the former Soviet Union. She struggles to find her place in the group while going through adolescence. At the age of 18 she is recruited to the Israeli army, where she will replace one set of rules - that of the swimming pool, with a bigger and stronger, national one – the Israeli military system. She exchanges her bathing cap and swimming suit with the military beret and uniform. The film's arena is the swimming pool which represents a world with its own unique set of rules. It is divided into two parts – the underwater, a world of poetics, abstract, and enigma. The sound is obscured, representing an inner world. The other part, above the water, contains strong, realistic, sharp set of rules, those that are held by Coach Lola.
