Jim Ellis, a college educated African American, who can’t find a job, is driven by his love of competitive swimming. Jim converts an abandoned recreational pool in Philadelphia slum with the help of Elston, a local janitor. When city officials mark the Philadelphia Department of Recreation for demolition, Jim fights back by starting the city’s first African-American swim team. Recruiting troubled teens from the streets, Jim struggles to transform a motley team of novices all the while meeting racism, violence and an unsympathetic city official who threatens to tear the team apart.
