'Would you dare to jump if there were water?', insecure teenager Alexander asks the boy he admires, who stands on a diving board in the middle of the beach. Cautiously dancing, they approach each other.
Marc Wagenaar’s debut is an almost dialogueless, poetic impression of an insecure teenager’s dilemma. Alexander spends his first holiday alone in an old beach cabin. Longing for affection, but searching for his identity, he stays inside. From the cabin, he watches the people on the beach. On a diving board, in the middle of the sand, he spots someone who is making some dance moves. Hesitant at first, but increasingly uninhibited, Alexander mimics him, which yields a cautious dance duet at a safe distance. Will he dare to make the next move?
