About the film


  • The Big Swim is an inspiring, ambitious short film written and directed by Kat Green about a young woman who finds out she might have terminal breast cancer and decides to face her biggest fear…swimming with sharks!



  • Rachel's (Kimberly Leemans) mother died of hereditary breast cancer when she was a little girl. When Rachel thinks she might suffer the same fate, she decides to face her fears by fulfilling her mother’s dying wish - to swim with SHARKS.She sets out on a journey to Cozumel, Mexico where she meets her handsome dive master, Luca (Falk Hentschel), and realizes that sharks aren’t nearly as scary as falling in love. Filmed on location in Cozumel, MX and Los Angeles.
