The summer season at a recreation center near Paris is in full swing, so there is no shortage of amusing situations at the crowded swimming pool. A glimpse into the mindset of the visitors and employees of the extensive park – original French inhabitants and immigrants who come here to relax because they lack the means for a more exotic vacation.


The summer season at a recreation center not far from Paris is in full swing, and the extensive park, swimming area, and various other attractions have come alive with the tumult of visitors. Unbeknownst to the security guards, rowdy boys slip in without paying and round out the relaxed atmosphere at the pool, as do the guys vying for the favor of pretty girls with daring jumps off a high bridge into the water. Initially we find amusing character traits among the vacationers, swimmers, groups of picnickers, and center employees, but more troubled human lives permeate the situations here presented. A glimpse into the mindsets of original French inhabitants and immigrants who come to relax because they lack the means for a more exotic vacation.
