Daisy Ridley stars in this fascinating biopic telling the extraordinary true story of Trudy Ederle, the first woman to swim the English Channel.

Born to immigrant parents in New York in 1905, Trudy was an accomplished swimmer who, through the support of her trainer and her older sister, overcame adversity and the animosity of a patriarchal society to rise through the ranks of the Olympic swimming team and complete the staggering feat – a 21-mile non-stop swim from France to England.
