A document about a swimming pool in the city of Kosice, the place where, according to the filmmakers´s slogan, "history used to go to bath". Through stories that took place by the pool between 1936 and 2003, the film captures the 66 years of the popular spot as well as the same years in the history of Central and Eastern Europe.The mosaic of the individual stories reconstructs the history; people's lives are not shown on the background of depersonalized history; people's lives make the history.
French, Slovak and Hungarian subtitles are available only for download in DVD format.
