A man surveys a beach house from the water. He leaves the surf and enters the bach. His presence there does not seem sinister, but it doesn’t feel right.
Someone is in the bathroom, he notices, and he doesn’t want them to know he is there. He enters the bedroom to find a woman and child asleep. When he makes a noise, the girl wakes but she isn’t afraid. This is her daddy. She goes to him, and they play out a familiar routine, a father and daughter game.
The man notices the woman is awake. She goes to speak but when the bathroom door is being opened, the man runs. He doesn’t want a confrontation.
The little girl runs after her father, but when she reaches the fence, she can go no further. As her mother and grandmother follow her, she shares a last look with her father. As he turns to leave, we are reminded of the poignant result of a relationship that didn’t work.
