Two elderly swimmers meet at the baths for their ritual swimming. This time they are diving deeper than usual. “Baths” is a short film about the dynamics of life based on a dualistic philosophy, constantly oscillating between two extremes: fantasy and reality, life and death, body and consciousness, past and future.
