Synopsis

The Marolles, at the heart of Brussels. Almost 65 years after its inauguration, the ‘Bains de Bruxelles’ always offer two public swimming pools and showers to the residents of this working-class neighbourhood.

People of different ages, origins and social classes come to this place of healing and appeasement.

Illustration of a melting pot where people train, wash, talk, and meet.

A film shot exclusively within the confines of the pool and its surroundings, where sensations, impressions and situations show a seemingly egalitarian vision in appearance, but will reveal itself to be much more complex.
