logline / short synopsis

The 9-year-old girl spends the day swimming in the pool. Her eyes sting from the chlorine in the water. The man’s eyes are red too although he spends the day in the bedroom. The sun is shining. The house is clean and tidy. A father and a daughter keep hiding from each other.
