THE SWIMMERS (Video on Demand Release World-Wide 2022)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Swimmers—wonderful watch—quickly becomes an inspirational film that deeply delineates the plight of refugees, the cost of relocating from one country to another, and the nearly impossible circumstances that frame refugees: homelessness, health issues, abandonment by transporters, and ability to find safe housing, regular meals, and necessary clothing. A champion’s story that presents miracle after miracle that needs to happen to make the transition possible as well as delivering the chilling message of the cost of relocation.
