About the Movie
Swimming phenom and multiple Olympic Gold Medalist Missy Franklin was destined for greatness at an early age, but destiny can be a burden. When 4-time Olympic Silver medalist Kara Lynn Joyce joined Missy’s teenage swim club, destiny started to become reality. In Kara, Missy finds the older sister she never had; in Missy, Kara begins to rediscover the mojo that made her one of the fiercest sprinters in the sport. Together they train, compete, and support each other as they reach for the highest pantheon of swimming – the London 2012 Olympic games. But as tension with their coach builds, the pool becomes too big for the two of them. Driven apart by coach and circumstance, they reunite triumphantly in London, and Missy becomes one of athletics biggest stars. Touch the Wall is a tale of adversity, triumph, and the friendship between two strong women. Not just a movie for swimmers, Touch the Wall is a universal story of grace and love in the rarified world of elite athletic competition. Together, Missy and Kara redefine what it means to win.
Great Sports Movie
I saw a private screening of this film in Hollywood and loved it. Great sports documentaries are rare and I was not disappointed.
I did not know Missy before that well but touch the wall is an amazing story not only about her but about the sport in general and personality & friendship. I was glad to see the movie in a theatre where I could meet Missy in person
Touched my wall!
Wow, and this is what i love about documentaries. This wonderful and fun filled inside into a world i know so little about. Missy's story is fantastic.
