SWIM TEAM

"Swim Team is long enough to break and warm your heart in equal measure - which is about what you'd expect from a documentary about teenagers with autism who are training to compete in the Special Olympics." -NPR

Swim Team chronicles the extraordinary rise of the Jersey Hammerheads, a New Jersey based swim team for children and teens on the autism spectrum. Following the team for a season from their first day at practice to the National Special Olympics, and covering their struggles and triumphs in and out of the water, Swim Team captures a moving quest for inclusion, independence and a life that feels winning.
