    • Synopsis
    • Mauricio, the lifeguard believes that the best worker is the one that never goes in the water because a good professional applies preventive measures to stop people from drowning. He loves order and is undoubtedly the most responsible lifeguard on the beach. This leads him to hate Jean Pierre, the lifeguard on the neighboring tower, who’s lazy and disorganized. Despite the constant arguments, his colleague doesn’t change his behavior, because to him, the only thing that matters is the act of going into the water to make a rescue.
