Fear of Water

Fear of Water

In this portrait of self-discovery, a budding friendship develops between teenage girls Alexia (Lily Loveless, Skins) and Eleanor (Chloe Partridge) over one life-changing summer.

Coming from different socioeconomic backgrounds, Eleanor lives in a strict proper home with a planned future but a family living in silence. Alexia, on the other hand, cannot seem to transcend the search for her family’s next meal. Sharing lazy summer days, rushed first kisses, and round-trip departures from home life – the girls test the precarious boundaries between class and love before truly realizing such boundaries exist. And when family tensions escalate, they stand up for one another before knowing what their brave acts of defiance really mean.

Conquering their fears, breaking out of their shells, and finding happiness even from unexpected sources makes this the summer that changed everything.
