She made it to the swimming pool passing a loose traffic system but was told by the janitor that she couldn’t use the pool because there was no hot water. When she decides to dive into the cold water anyway, ignoring the prohibition, she faces a different obstacle, besides the sense of coldness. Laila Pakalnina, who’s become a household name on the Latvian film scene, carefully observes sur/ realistic situations in daily life and continues her documentary and feature works in her own intellectual style. (Jay SOHN)
