After arriving at a holiday villa on an Italian island, bourgeois couple Adam (Dobromir Dymecki) and Anna (Agnieszka Żulewska) discover that the swimming pool is empty. The migrant worker sent to fix it suffers a deadly poolside accident, setting off a chain of disturbing events that shake the moral foundations of this seemingly perfect couple. Aesthetically sparse, with an enigmatic plot, Agnieszka Woszczyńska’s debut feature is an unflinching character study that unfurls the power of denial.
