Gags are guaranteed as Karl, a candidate for Grumpiest Lifeguard Ever, seeks to save the love of his life, the local swimming pool, from closure. Luckily he has his 'deputy', the asylum-seeker Sali, by his side and after a few initial difficulties the whole village of Grubberg joins in. A laconic hymn to life, community and, in the end, love.
