WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Middle-class Polish couple Adam (Dymecki) and Anna (Żulewska) arrive at a holiday villa on an Italian island, only to find that their swimming pool is empty. Ignorant of the island’s water shortage, they ask someone round to fix the pool for them, but a tragic accident sets off a chain of disturbing events that cause the seemingly-perfect couple to confront their own morals…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

The feature debut of Polish filmmaker Aga Woszczyńska is a dark character study that explores the moralities of the bourgeois, and offers the chance to catch some sunrays at the same time.
