Set in New York, Swim Little Fish Swim focuses on the domestic life of Leeward (Defa) and Mary (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 marginal musician who fancies himself a misunderstood artist and New Age visionary. The two can’t even agree on what to name their three-year old daughter (Olivia Durling Costello). Enter Lilas (Bessis), a 19 year-old French artist trying to make it in New York and escape the shadow of her famous painter mother (Consigny). When the bubbly young woman moves into the couple’s tiny Chinatown apartment, their already fragile balance is upset even further.
