The Swimmers Ending Explained: Is the Show Based on True Story?

The Swimmers Ending Explained: Based on real events “The Swimmers” is a biographical drama about the struggles of Yusra Mardini, a Syrian swimmer who left her country with her sister, Sara Mardini, during the Syrian civil war. Their father trained both Yusra and Sara because he wanted to see them compete at the Olympics.

But the Syrian civil war quickly put an end to their dream. Even though the Mardini family wanted to keep living, as usual, the bombings and attacks that happened every day made them rethink their lives. Sara, the oldest sister, was very set on leaving the country.

Sara could no longer relax in her house after hearing about her friends and what they were losing because of the war. The two sisters, who are very different from each other, went on a journey that shows what can be done with hard work and a little luck.

Before they got to Germany, it's not clear exactly how they got out of Syria in the first place. Everyone thinks that they all stayed in Berlin. The audience doesn't have to guess what will happen to the family like they do with many other subplots.

What Happens to the Other Refugees?

As “The Swimmers” goes on, the other refugees get less and less attention. Their stories have nothing to do with the main plot anymore. Even though that could be a flaw in the story, it makes you wonder what happened to the others.
