Omeleto

Blood and Water by Brian Blum

An Olympic platform diver struggles to return to the pool after a horrific training accident.

Aspiring Olympic diver Garrett Delaney was born to compete on the world stage, and his mom Tracy has been training him for it his entire life.

But a near-death accident in practice shakes his faith in that dream. With Olympic trials only two weeks away, he fears he must make a decision: give up or die trying.

“Blood and Water” boasts stellar production values, sharp camerawork and a charismatic lead screen presence by bona-fide 2016 Olympic silver medalist Steele Johnson, lending the film a degree of gritty authenticity and impressiveness.

The story is inspired by director Brian Blum’s own experience as a competitive diver. After his head collided with a springboard during a routine dive, he took three years to recover psychologically from the accident.

His experience lends the storytelling a degree of emotional specificity, transforming the typical comeback story into a riveting portrait of courage and resilience.
