Swim Team is a documentary following three young athletes with autism as they strive to become champions. On the competitive swim team the Jersey Hammerheads, athletes with autism are treated like typical athletes and challenged like never before. Coming of age and facing exclusion, these boys and their parents struggle to create opportunities in and out of the water and to define identities beyond disability. Swim Team tells a universal story about the self-fulfilling prophecy of high expectations.
