My girlfriend saw a movie and asked me to find it:

Is about a boy in High School that is in the swimming team as he is a very good athlete.
But one day his skin starts to become flakes with the touch of water. Later in the movie he discovers his mother was a siren or something like that.

The movie is probably american, and around year 2000? not sure.
