Full of art, music and everyday magic, Swim Little Fish Swim is a dreamlike journey from childhood to adulthood depicting three intertwined characters at turning points in their lives.  Swim Little Fish Swim focuses on the domestic life of Leeward (Dustin Guy Defa) and Mary (Brooke Bloom), a young married couple at a crossroads.  Mary is a hardworking nurse determined to turn the couple’s lives around while Leeward is a struggling musician who fancies himself a misunderstood artist and New Age visionary.  Enter Lilas (Lola Bessis), a 19-year-old French artist trying to make it in New York and escape the shadow of her famous painter mother. When the bubbly young woman moves into the couple’s tiny Chinatown apartment, their already fragile balance is upset even further.
