A boy stands in his goggles waiting next to an empty swimming pool. Before he gets into the pool, it quickly fills up with adults, children and an assortment of inflatable toys. The boy dives into the mass of people and he meets a girl who shows him the way to a forest of fish and plants. The children play with the fish and watch a whale before it leads them to break cover in the busy pool.
