“A 50 year old Masters Hall of Fame swimmer is recruited by perennial college swimming powerhouse, Diablo Valley College, and joins their swim team.
This multi award winning documentary captures that record-smashing season and the preceding 30 years of open water exploits, including the first of 3 successful crossings of the English Channel.
It explores the universal themes of hard work and discipline and examines the attitude that remaining relevant and vibrant as one ages is a state of mind.”
