Yusra (Nathalie Issa) and Sara Mardini (Manal Issa) have undergone rigorous swimming training with their father (Ali Suliman) since childhood. By 2015, with Syria’s devastating civil war escalating, their dreams of Olympic gold are quickly fading. They decide to risk the perilous journey to Europe.
Accompanied by their cousin (Ahmed Malek), they escape first to Lebanon, then Turkey. They board a small boat teeming with fellow refugees to cross a frequently lethal stretch of the Mediterranean sea, but their journey is far from over.
