Bombay Sapphire - Water Song in London

And finally... The last of the five Bombay Sapphire shorts starts filming tonight at the York Hall swimming pool in Bethnal Green. This is winner Paul Frankl's story Water Song about a young deaf and dumb girl Aika, who is a competitive swimmer so desperate to win the race that she is willing to compromise herself in doing so.
