Movie Info

Alex (Lauren Jackson) is a well-rounded girl in addition to being an Olympic-quality competitor. She takes ballet, plays on the school hockey team, and somehow finds time to perform in the school's production of The Mikado. Currently, she is one of the best swimmers in her class in all of New Zealand, and she's confident of a place on the Olympic team, but her coach (Chris Haywood) is worried that she's spreading herself too thin. Normally, competition-level swimmers have time for their classwork and for swimming, and precious little for anything else. In addition to her other non-swimming activities, Alex is even finding time to study Italian in preparation for the Rome Olympics. While a little confidence in an athlete is a good thing, this level of smugness is dangerous, and her cozy world is shattered when an equally good swimmer (Catherine Godbold) moves back to New Zealand from Singapore and begins competing against her. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
