Storyline

It's the start of the spring term in a small northern town, heralding swimming lessons, hanging out with best friends, new classes and new possibilities. But this year, things are different for 14-year-old Sam. While her friends are moving on, focusing on boys, experimenting with drugs, Sam is too uncomfortable to even take off her bathing suit in front of the other girls. After landing herself into trouble, she is forced to work as a cleaner at the retirement home run by her mother. Sam finds unexpected and unlikely friendships with two of the retirement home's residents who end up teaching Sam a few things about growing up and growing old.

captivating shots of cold sad places, immersive shots of water, and lots of subtlety.
16 August 2017 | by thesimplisticsSee all my reviews

Usually my thought box is abuzz the entire time. But from the very beginning, this film got me to just stop and really listen. a lot of simple themes explored in a memorable way. a very small but touching story of people, life, death, sadness, and true happiness. each shot is filled with emotion.

The tone, pacing, and characters are all cold and unpleasant. The atmosphere, the themes, and the journey are warm and pleasant.

very artzy, but very beautiful.
