Buoyancy places us in modern-day France and a blend of fairy tales. A boy and his abandoned mother befriend a young girl living alone on a sprawling estate. The sole survivor of a family boating accident, she has made a terrible bargain to survive days of being lost at sea. The boy seems to have also unknowingly made an unnatural exchange for her love.
