Overview
Jim Ellis knows firsthand the discrimination that comes from being the lone black swimmer on his 1973 college swimming team. When he graduates and fails to find a job teaching math, he takes a position packing up boxes at a soon-to-be demolished rec center in Philadelphia. When he discovers the run-down pool at the center, he dreams of rallying the local youth who hang around the center and creating a competitive swim team. Though he faces a few obstacles along the way, the team comes together and tours the local communities, competing at meets and bearing the blatant racism at those meets with pride and dignity. Through their desire to excel, they change their community and end up saving the rec center in the process.
