Story of Two Olympians Rings True

I love that the filmmakers caught the intertwined stories of two Olympians in real time. The juxtaposition of the older and younger Olympians and the strength that they each gave each other seemed too good to be true. Although it was a documentary, in some regards it had the sweetness of a fictional account. And I guess that's what makes this film so special. Highly recommend it for swimmers, or anyone who likes a good story of perseverance and camaraderie.

An awesome, deeply moving film.

This is an awesome film, and deeply moving. Though it looks like a swim film, it gets much deeper on a major themes - friendship, competition, parenting, winning and losing. And the two stars of the film - the superstar Missy and the veteran Kara - are role models that our world sorely needs. A must see!
