Illuminating and enlightening.

If you happen to be transgender and you want to go swimming, which changing room do you go into? In this short documentary we meet a group of trans activists who have taken matters into their own hands and set up a safe space swimming club. It is a film about the healing effects of community and the relief that comes after taking the bravest plunge of all - to just be yourself. It is also an ode to universal joys of swimming.
