The Swimmers

Based on the incredibly inspiring true story, two sisters who swim competitively leave flee their war-torn country in order to train for the Olympics. Sara and Yusra Mardini’s journey as refugees is haunting and courageous. They swam alongside their boat from Syria to Greece. I haven’t watched a movie that moved me in a while but this was really well done. I know in theory about refugees but seeing it play out from start to finish gave me fresh perspective. If you have time, highly encourage this watch.
