ABOUT

Teenage, Muslim refugee girls in burkinis take swimming lessons.

Directed by Elizabeth Rodgers

Based on a true story of Muslim refugee girls in Boise getting a swimming lesson, complete with burkinis. The swimming lessons came about after a boy from the Congo who had only been in the US for 10 days drowned in Quinn’s Pond. After that catastrophe, the refugee agencies managed to get swimming lessons for all refugees who wanted to try.
