A hot summer’s day. The two hours at the small pool near Grandma’s summer house were too little for Gal, so being the headstrong teenager that she is, she secretly returns. When a couple of ultra-Orthodox Hasidic boys show up at the pool and also want to swim there, the situation quickly becomes tense.
