The Swimming Pool

The Swimming Pool

Esteban, an ex-professional swimmer and now instructor, waits for his students to arrive. The four teenagers have one thing in common: their physical disabilities have made outsiders of them all. Diana is bossy; Rodrigo is weak-willed; Dany is an innocent; and Oscar flatly refuses to speak. As one languid, carefree day at the pool runs its course, conflict within the group slowly arises, until the idyllic scene is filled with animosity, rivalries, power games and an unspoken mutual longing for love.
