‘The Life of Esteban’ is the remarkable life-story of a young man, destined to become an Olympic swimmer. Raised by a single mother and without knowing who his father is, Esteban strives to make sense of his own identity as he grows up. He discovers the pleasure of swimming and over time he starts to understand how swimming can be a metaphor for life itself.
