For 28 years, Icelandic babies and their new parents have bonded in a unique way at a shabby pool not far from the ocean and the mountains. Six days a week, Snorri, a pioneer and visionary swimming coach, creates a unique world where babies stand on his palm and swim underwater as he opens lines of non-verbal communication and earns their ‒ and their parents’ ‒ trust.
