Amos, alcoolique en rémission, obtient la garde de son fils Themba, lequel vient juste de perdre sa mère, à la condition de permettre à l’enfant de poursuivre sa carrière de nageur. Ils s’installent tous deux à Hopeville, et découvre une petite bourgade où corruption, peur et suspicion tuent toute velléité. Confronté au scepticisme et à la résistance des autorités et des habitants, Amos, contre vents et marées, remet en état l’ancienne piscine municipale. Sa persévérance, sa détermination et son courage, feront de lui un exemple et un moteur de changement pour toute la communauté.

When his ex-wife is killed, Amos, a reformed alcoholic, begins his mission to forge a relationship with his estranged son Themba. When father and son arrive in the dusty town of Hopeville, they discover a mean little community where apathy, fear and suspicion are the order of the day. When Amos decides to restore the public swimming pool so that Themba can pursue a swimming career, he is met with skepticism and resistance from the town’s authorities and its inhabitants. Through patience, determination and above all courage, Amos’ selfless act ripples through Hopeville, inspiring others to take action and do what they know is right. Slowly but surely, good ripples through Hopeville, transforming the town and its inhabitants.

Als Amos beschließt, das herunter gekommene öffentliche Schwimmbad zu restaurieren, um seinem ambitionierten Sohn das Schwimmtraining zu ermöglichen, stößt er von allen Seiten auf Widerstand. Die städtischen Behörden legen ihm dabei alle erdenklichen Steine in den Weg; die Bewohner sind skeptisch und wenig hilfsbereit. Wird Amos es schaffen, dem Ort neues Leben ein zu hauchen?
