Born in 1998 in Damascus, Syria, the little girl Yusra Mardini began to dream of swimming. She started training at a very young age and her talent led her to participate in official international competitions at the age of 14. But the outbreak of the Civil War made it really difficult for him to make a living there, and he and his older sister Sarah decided to leave in search of better luck.
The two sisters, who turned into refugees, managed to escape from the country and came first to Lebanon and then to Turkey. But things could get more complicated, and they came to pay the smugglers to buy a crowded little boat for Greece. Seeing that the boat, whose aim is to reach Europe, is taking on water, Yusra and Sarah, together with another passenger, jump into the water to lighten their weight and swim towards the island of Lesbos.
Their journey wasn’t over when they got there, however, as the Mardini brothers still passed through Macedonia, Serbia, Hungary, and Austria before finally arriving in Germany. After so many transfers, they had the opportunity to redevelop their skills as swimmers there. Yusra dreamed of swimming in the Olympics and would soon join the team, although Sarah didn’t go as far as her older sister. After going through many challenges in her life, they achieved their goals in Berlin under the supervision of coach Sven Spannkrebs: Yusra participated in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio and then the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
Motivation, spirit of survival, putting skills at the service of the common good… all this moving aspect, swimmers, but also the suffering, uncertainty and dangers they have to endure. However, in an interview with Forbes, director Sally El Hosaini admitted that although she tries to stay true to the true story of the people of Mardin, she should also include fictional elements. This story has a happy ending, but it has nothing to do with the rough outcome of thousands of other cases of Syrian citizens who had worse luck in the middle of the war, and their reality deserves reflection.
