55-year-old pool man Adam is known as the champ, a tribute to his former swimming glories. But he's getting old and times are changing. He gets demoted; his son gets his job; and then he makes a fateful deal with the leader of the resistance movement that has grave implications. War is background not foreground, but we understand its power through simple, elegant framing and a fine performance from Youssouf Djaoro in the lead role.
