A Mexican coming-of-age dramedy about a teenage boy’s resilience after losing his father, Oliver & the Pool explores grief, forgiveness, and young love from a poolside chaise lounge.

When something unexpected happens in 13-year-old Oliver’s family, all he wants to do is hide under a rock. He takes up residence on a poolside chaise lounge and finds no reason to move–ever. Life swirls around him, revealing secrets and presenting new challenges. Through moments of death, potty, and basic physics, Oliver learns that some truths just can’t be ignored.
