At a dystopian future moment in the coast of Oaxaca, due to global warming the oceans PH levels have acidified making them unsuitable for humans, therefor sea tourism has been gone for generations and only indigenous language is spoken. Wuicho repeats his father’s and grandfather’s ritual of keeping swimming pools pristine, but in meantime he keeps questioning his actions and his predecessors.

Written and filmed on his own, with a reflex camera and a smart phone in 10 days, the work has a fleeting quality.
