Inspired by real stories from the world of women’s sports in post-revolutionary Iran, Swim Team follows three women who are determined to learn to swim in a place devoid of water. When their coach transforms her small apartment into a training facility, they discover that it can still be tricky to achieve your dreams, even when they’re just in your imagination.
