Learn to Swim is a surrealist romantic drama that follows Toronto jazz saxophonist Dezi Williams (Olajide), as he attempts to escape a recent tragedy. He’s withdrawn from his band and tries to spend his days in solitude as an instrument repair technician, but is haunted by his memories, a mounting pain in his jaw, and an intrusive new neighbour. When Dezi’s band tracks him down, he is no longer able to hold all the pieces together. Soon the line between reality and memory blur, and he is forced to confront the truths of his past.


Learn to Swim est un drame sentimental surréaliste dans lequel le saxophoniste de jazz torontois Dezi Williams tente d’échapper à une tragédie. Il a quitté son groupe et cherche à rester seul en se contentant de réparer des instruments de musique. Il est obsédé par ses souvenirs, sa mâchoire qui le fait souffrir et un nouveau voisin qui se fait envahissant. Quand les membres de son groupe le retrouvent, Dezi se porte plutôt mal. Bientôt, la frontière entre la réalité et les souvenirs se brouille. Il doit faire face aux sombres vérités de son passé.
