Swimming to Freedom
You can’t realize your dream when you’re living someone else’s. Swimming was Brandon’s passion, the water his escape—but all of that ended when his workaholic father shifted his focus from business to training Brandon to become an Olympic champion. What Brandon once did for love is now a chore performed to stave off his controlling father’s criticism. Brandon meets and falls in love with Tyler, a swimmer from another team. Despite their busy schedules, they find time together away from prying eyes, largely thanks to their friend Joel. But when Brandon comes out to his father, he finds himself on the street, taking shelter beneath a bridge. With the river nearby to practice in and protection from the rain, things aren’t so bad.
Then nature turns against him, and the resulting flood might be the one obstacle he can’t overcome.
