In a hotel in the South of France, Paul and Rebecca, an English couple in their 50s peacefully spend their holiday by the poolside. Other guests relax in the same way. Some read, some listen to music, bask in the sun, the kids splash around.

In the sweltering heat, Paul's summer routine is disrupted by Jérémy, a complex and mischievous child. As the tension grows day by day, Paul struggles to retain the upper hand.

When the boy falls suddenly on the edge of the pool, cracking his head open, Paul is overwhelmed by a guilty conscience.
