Great Film Inspired by True Events
24 February 2018 | by scottymenaSee all my reviews

A great film inspired by true events. It's about facing your fears and taking that literal leap of faith. But in this case, it's an accident that causes the fear. Garrett plays a potential Olympic Swimmer who experiences a horrible accident during one of his dives. He is haunted by the event and has a hard time training for the Olympics. His mother who happens to be his trainer doesn't help him at all with her strict training and pushing Garrett to get to the finals. He learns to take matters into his own hands. Surprised at the great cinematography and powerful storytelling. Really enjoyed this story that is loosely based on the filmmaker's own experience. A great 20 minutes that doesn't waste time on unnecessary drama but goes straight to the point. The cast and crew were incredible. With the crowdfunding funds that they got, you can tell they put all that to good use. I was very impressed with the film and moved by the story. Watch it when you get a chance.
