‘Wednesdays’ is an award-winning short movie about a young boy who visits
the swimming pool on wednesdays, accompanied by a thirty-something family
friend. It’s only the indecent question asked by the family friend in the last minute
of the movie that makes you look completely different at the previous, seemingly
careless minutes spent at the pool.
‘Balance’ is the second part of the two-part movie (following ‘Wednesdays’) about
a young man who struggles with his past of being sexually abused by a family friend.
Now in his twenties, he finds the concept of sex hard to deal with.
Written and directed by Aaron Rookus.
