FILM GUIDE THE POOL

Three teenage boys who break into their school swimming pool one night to stage a macho breath-holding contest. But as the night goes on, the loud, brash Charlie begins to tease the overweight, childlike Sam. After a girl arrives whom they all fancy, tensions start to escalate, and by the end of the night none of their lives will ever be the same.
