The inspirational true story of Mercedes Gleitze, who in 1927 became the first British woman to swim the English Channel. Vindication Swim depicts Mercedes’ upstream struggle in overcoming both the cold waters of the English Channel and the oppressive society of 1920s England. However, after a rival comes forward claiming to have accomplished the same feat, Mercedes is forced into battle to retain her record and her legacy. Kirsten Callaghan who plays Gleitze, trained in open water swimming for three months prior to the start of filming to allow her to accurately perform all of her swimming in the film without the use of body doubles. Her swimming costume that she wears in the film is over a hundred years old to ensure authenticity.
