Synopsis

"Tuvalu" is the name of an island which Anton dreams of escaping to -- a dream which seems unlikely to come true, given that he works as the maintenance man at the dilapidated and largely deserted pool owned by his father. Located in the middle of nowhere, the pool has been going out of business for years, but Anton goes to elaborate measures to convince his blind father that the pool is still popular and frequented. When Anton's entrepreneur brother Gregor hatches a scheme to have the pool razed and sold off as real estate, Anton must enlist the help of the few regulars who support the pool. Banding together, the group atempts to save the pool from a health inspection that will put it out of business, while Anton tries to win the love of his longtime friend Eva.
