about the film



Bilal, a young 17 year old Kurdish boy, has travelled through the Middle East and Europe to join his girlfriend, freshly immigrated to England. But his journey comes to an abrupt end when he is stopped on the French side of the Channel. Having decided to swim across, Bilal goes to the local swimming pool to train. There he meets Simon, a swimming instructor in the midst of a divorce. To impress his estranged wife and win back her heart, Simon decides to risk everything by taking Bilal under his wing, and give him shelter and swimming lessons.
