Lausche nicht dem Wasser

A Film by Jonas Hartung

Synopsis

Boy” finds himself in an absurd situation. He wakes up on a little island in the middle of an open-air swimming pool, unable to remember anything. A strange sailor is his only companion. And although the edge of the pool is just a few metres away, it seems out of reach: a shark is patrolling the water.
