The Pool

Director: Thomas Hefferon

Teenage bravado is pushed to its limits in this short which sees three adolescent boys losing their sense amidst a dangerous breath-holding contest at the local pool. Sam (Thomas Kelly) is bullied by the arrogant Charlie (Ryan Andrews), a situation that only gets worse when the arrival of Katie (Lauren Coe) stokes up the boys’ machismo. With its characters driven by peer pressure and sexual pangs, The Pool honestly depicts the forces steering teenagers to what are often stupid or cruel actions.
