Scene from MANOLO (photo © dffb)

His mother wants him out of the house, his cousin wants him out of his way and Linda, this summer's princess, wants something too, if only he knew what.

On a sunny afternoon at the pool, 12-year-old Manolo has to face his fears: Will he stand up to his big cousin Mike, the notorious splash-diving hotshot?
