Based on true events, this is the inspiring story of inner city Philadelphia's swim coach Jim Ellis, a charismatic schoolteacher who changed lives forever when he founded an African-American swim team in one of it's roughest neighborhoods in the 1970s. Ultimately, Ellis leads the swimmers to the state championships.
