Alex Archer is a 15-year-old Kiwi who has her heart set on winning gold in the 100m freestyle at the 1960 Rome Olympics. Unlike today's professionally-trained swimmers, Alex is expected to not only train, but keep up with her schoolwork, piano lessons and ballet classes. Her training conditions are primitive, and it doesn't help her that Alex's family are battlers who fail to share her dream. And Alex has a worse problem to face - the death of her boyfriend. Will Alex achieve her dream?
