•Adam and his brother Max are inseparable. They do everything together. The boys go on a winter break with their mother to South Wales, a loved destination they visit every year. Their love of the freedom that the open countryside brings alongside the idyllic and safe community draws them in . They are trusted by their mother to go and explore as they please. They roam the ruins and secret gardens before encountering the coastline where they decide to go for a walk along the cliff . Max walks right along the  edge and his brother tells him to stop playing as it isn’t safe. max  slips and falls to his death. The family is overcome with grief.  Years later,  Adam returns to the scene and recounts the fond memories he shared with his brother until he reaches the shoreline. He replays the events that lead to his brothers death in his mind as he takes off his clothes and places them in a neat pile. The memory of how his mother blamed him for not taking care of his little brother is going through his mind as he enters the water. A dog walker on the hill sees what she thinks is a person going for a swim but when she eventually reaches the shore, there is no sign of the Adam; for the longest moment the dog walker looks out to the ocean and sees nothing. Adam is under the struggling for breath adamant that he is going to commit suicide. As he loses consciousness his life flashes before his eyes all the images he sees are empowering relinquishing the guilt that has plagued his life. He regains consciousness and fights to get to the surface and takes a deep breath of air as he breaks the surface. having had a life changing moment  he comes to terms with the death of his brother then emerges from the water , out of breath but reborn in a sense.
