A small crew is going around Marrakech and its surroundings looking for swimming pools as locations for the remake of an American movie in which a man crosses a county, pool by pool, to reach his home. Corrado, the ‘stand-in’, runs barefoot across the streets of the city, trying to find the path of pools that the main actor will swim through. While we observe his struggles, we start seeing the real actors and crew working on set between doubts and shouts. A film in an identity crisis looking for itself.
