At an unknown time in the near future, a Central-Eastern European country – fearing overpopulation as a result of an aging population – passes a gruesome law that requires everyone approaching the age of 70 be put to sleep in a humane fashion.

An elderly lifeguard gets a life-changing medical diagnosis. As a result, he has to abstain from any physical activity. This is devastating news for the lifeguard because he’s a dedicated swimming coach and former Olympic champion. Everyday he races against the younger version of himself, unable to come to terms with his present circumstances.

Linda Dombrovszky graduated as film and television director at University of Theatre and Film Arts, Budapest. She studied on scholarship at centro Sperimentale di cinematografia in rome. Director of several award-winning short films and documentaries, she is currently working on her first feature script based on the story of Seventies.

Dávid Géczy is a Hungarian film director. Since 2008 he has been directing numerous commercials, music videos, and television series. He’s also made 4 short movies and is currently working on 3 feature fiction projects. The first one is about a serial killer in a noir-gangster drama; the second is about a bank robbery; and the third is an “eastern” western movie.
