While both are eager to form connections at the Olympic Games, they are held back by the very thing that has propelled them to this point; what do you do once your lifelong dream has come true, you’re faced with taking the next step? As Penelope and Ezra navigate the vulnerable slopes, they push one another to embrace qualities they lost sight of in pursuit of their dreams. Will they be able to help each other take of leap of faith into the unknown?

Directed and co-written by Jeremy Teicher, Olympic Dreams is the first movie ever filmed on location during the Olympics in Athletes Village. offers audiences a never-before-seen side of the Games and the people whose entire lives are shaped by them.
