Plot Summary: "The Pool" is a charming, elegantly shot fable set in neighborhoods of
poverty and privilege in Goa, India. 18-year-old Venkatesh ekes out a living working in a hotel and pounding the pavement selling plastic bags. It's a far cry from his fantasy - to dive into the glimmering, David Hockney-esque swimming pool of an upper-class family. After he befriends the head of the household (Bollywood superstar Nana Patekar), and begins to pal around with his upstart daughter Ayesha, Venkatesh subtly but assertively sets his sights on a more comfortable way of life for himself and his friend, Jhangir.
