2 Friends, Racing Against Each Other for a Lifetime

Every morning for the past 17 years, Pete and Val have been swimming together at the local pool. Every year on June 12, they race—two laps, up and back. That's all.

Two Laps was written and directed by Owen Trevor and shot at North Narrabeen Beach in Sydney, Australia, for Passion Pictures.
