Description

Stuff happens sometimes.Everyday stuff.At school, at home, with sport, with mates.For Michael it happened when he thought he was letting his parents down.Michael is the best swimmer in the school, probably the state, maybe the country. One day he might compete at the Olympics and his parents and teachers support him 100 per cent, making sacrifices so he can be the very best. Michael trains all the time, up and down the pool with discipline and determination to do his best for himself, for the coach, for his parents, for everyone. Then one day he sees a skater fly down the hill on a board and Michael starts to wonder if there's more to life than swimming.
