Synopsis: 

"Alongside the southernmost urban centre in Africa, separating city from ocean, lies a very special strip of land. Set against the beautiful backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean on one side and Signal Hill on the other, the Sea Point Promenade - and the public swimming pools at its center - forms a space unlike any other in Cape Town. Once a bastion of Apartheid exclusivity, it is nowadays unique in its apparently easy mix of age, race, gender, religion, wealth status and sexual orientation. Somehow this space has become one where all South Africans feel they have a right to exist - and where, by implication, the possibility of happiness in a divided world can be negotiated. What is the actual lived reality experienced by those coming here? How are people negotiating their past, their present experience in this space, and by implication, their future in this country?"
