Summer with Hope

Synopsis : Young swimmer, Omid (whose name means “Hope” in Persian), along with his mother, Leili, and uncle, Saadi, have each placed their individual fates on one vital upcoming swimming competition. In the days and hours before the meet, however, the consequences of failure become clear for each ‒ all of which falls heavily on Omidʼs shoulders as a responsibility he refuses to bear.
