A woman living in a rural area comes to the lake to wash her husband's clothes. Her son accompanies her to catch fish. Washing her husband's clothes is another obligatory activity in her day-to-day tasks, which she does with much difficulty. It is a continuing cycle - tedious and tiring - similar to her marriage. She can neither stop the work nor break away from her marriage.
Her only pleasure is found in bathing, when she bathes in the lake while it rains. The water is relaxing, a fleeting asylum from the weight of obligations. It is a moment snatched from her life, only for her self. This stolen moment also shatters when she finally sees her son urinating into the very water she bathes.
