This new British independent film dives into the extraordinary life of Mercedes Gleitze, who in 1927 became the first British woman to swim the English Channel.

Vindication Swim depicts Mercedes’ upstream struggle in overcoming both the cold waters of the English Channel and the oppressive society of 1920s England. However, after a rival comes forward claiming to have accomplished the same feat, Mercedes is forced into battle to retain her record and her legacy.
