It's 1974 and Jim Ellis, a college-educated African-American who can't find a job, converts an abandoned recreational pool hall in a Philadelphia slum into a centre for competitive swimming. But when city officials slate the new Philadelphia Department of Recreation for demolition, Jim fights back - by starting the city's first African-American swimming team, made up of local teens who have had their basketball court taken away, too.
