Synopsis: 

A film about the Košice swimming pool, the place where, according to the filmmaker's slogan, "history came to swim." Set between 1936 and 2002, the story reflects historical events that took place in Central and Eastern Europe during that period. Using the pool as a backdrop where three generations came to cool off, a kind of "personal theatre" has been created, a space which becomes itself a model for evoking social history.
