The swimmer has just finished his dailies hours of training. He pulls himself out of the water and sits at the edge of the pool. Timothy breathes heavily, his abdomen flexes and deflates in rhythm. Little by little, his muscles get loose, his heart gets quiet, Timothy falls nearly asleep. These nine minutes of film are shown in a loop, and endlessly enact the climax and afterglow of an act of love.

Le nageur vient de terminer ses heures d’entrainement quotidiennes. Il se tire de l’eau et s’assoit sur le bord de la piscine. Timothy respire fort, son abdomen se gonfle et se dégonfle en cadence. Petit à petit, ses muscles se relâchent, son coeur bat moins fort, Timothy s’endort presque. Ces neuf minutes de film sont projetées en boucle. Elles rejouent interminablement l’apogée puis l’apaisement de l’acte amoureux.
