Stand at Attention
7 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two men meet on a train. There is a bit of history between them. One of them was a guest at a hotel years ago. The other was a boy at that time. He was under the thumb of a brutal military father (who was the pool director) who ordered him time after time, disciplining him for every little thing, taking away his childhood. When the other man intervened he was threatened by the father. The poor boy had to stand at attention in the hot sun for an hour, do forty laps in the pool, wait on guests, clean the place up. As the first man quizzes his acquaintance, we find out the secret he has carried around for years. I really like this episode.
