Set in Melbourne in 1996, the show deals with “identity, obsession, desire, the dizzy heights of success and the terrifying risk of failure”. 16-year-old Danny struggles to fit in after winning a scholarship to an exclusive boys school. But as his incredible swimming talents go from strength to strength, he is set on a path to become Australia’s youngest swimming champion, the unstoppable ‘Barracuda’.

The four-part series received positive reviews when it debuted in Australia earlier this year, and will be available to stream on BBC Three this winter.
