Sixty-five years after fleeing Austria to evade the Nazis, a group of champion women swimmers from the Jewish sports club Hakoah Vienna reunite to tell their inspiring story in this documentary. Now in their eighties, the women return to the Vienna pool where they trained for Hakoah Vienna, which was founded in 1909 after Austrian sports clubs were forbidden to admit Jews. The film captures the reunion and chronicles the athletes' story.
