(Fiction Film, 12 minutes, October 2018)

A warm spring morning in the kibbutz's public swimming pool.
Aryeh (60) does not know how to swim, so he is led to the deep water by the swimming instructor who in his opinion is the best for him, his 13-year-old son, Yoav.
In the early hours of the morning, when the pool is relatively empty, Aryeh and his embarrassing presence are easier to carry for Yoav.
But what will happen with the arrival of Yoav's classmates?
Standing between his father and the popular classmates, the delicate balance in the
water becomes unbearable.
