Storyline

In the wake of anti-Muslim race riots in Australia, hijab-wearing Mecca Laalaa and 20 other young Muslims try for the Bronze Medallion and the right to become surf life savers at Sydney's Cronulla beaches. They want to show how moderate, peaceful and Australian they are. Can they overcome racism, Islamic dress codes, media storms and their own poor swimming to earn the right to patrol between the flags? Written by Alan Erson
