    • Synopsis
    • A phlegmatic swimming teacher, a teenage girl who is missing a leg, a boy with Down’s Syndrome, another with defective legs and one with no apparent physical disability but who refuses to speak, spend a day at the swimming pool. The five outcasts inevitably struggle, clash, separate – and in the end reunite thanks to their imperfections.
