What would you do if your community gave up on your child?

In New Jersey, the parents of a boy on the autism spectrum take matters into their own hands. They form a competitive swim team, recruiting diverse teens on the spectrum and training them with high expectations and zero pity.

SWIM TEAM chronicles the extraordinary rise of the Jersey Hammerheads, capturing a moving quest for inclusion, independence and a life that feels winning.

Presented with Friends of Congress Square Park (in Congress Square Park).  Starts at sunset.

This event is a collaboration with POV, PBS’ award-winning nonfiction film series. 

Filmmaker: Lara Stolman
