A small crew is going around Marrakech and its surroundings looking for swimming pools to find locations for the remake of an American movie in which a man crosses a county, pool by pool, to reach his home. Corrado, a ‘stand-in’, tries the shots to find the path through the city and the pools that the main character will run and swim through. At the same time it’s as if the need to become more than just a stand-in takes over him. Corrado feels all the dignity of an actor and he wants to demonstrate he could be as good as any other professional actor. And so, while we observe his struggles, we start seeing the real actors and crew working on set between doubts and shouts. A film looking for where the real film is.
