‘The Swimmers’ is the true story of two Syrian teenage sisters who flee their war-torn home in Damascus to compete in the Rio Olympics.

Director Sally L Hosaini uncovers their traumatic ordeal, crossing the Mediterranean to reach Europe and facing a dangerous overland journey to Germany.

This powerful biographical drama, sometimes harrowing, but inspirational, highlights the vulnerability of refugees and their powerlessness in the chaos of conflicting political systems and snail-paced bureaucracy.

Rotten Tomatoes rating 81%. A ‘must-see’ 5 star experience.
