Film description

It seems like just a regular race when the camera captures the Paralympics competitors before the start swimming. However, their concept of competition sets them apart, as the swimmers do not compete with opponents but with their own disabilities while supporting each other as if to prove that sport is more than the search for triumph over rivals. It is also the exuberance of youth, power of competition and true sportsmanship emotions.
