Breaking the Surface: The Greg Louganis Story
Genre: Gay Drama
Seoul 1988: While plummeting toward the water, Greg Louganis (Mario Lopez of Saved by the Bell and The Other Half) hits the diving board, cutting his head open. Splashing into the water Greg begins to have flashbacks:
Being ridiculed by the other neighborhood children and his own unaccepting, overbearing father; winning the silver medal; the 1982 world championship; two gold medals in Los Angeles; the struggles of an abusive relationship with Tom Barrett; his father terminal cancer; Tom's losing battle with AIDS and Greg's own HIV positive status.
After doctors in Seoul stitch Greg's head wound, he returns to competition and picks up two more gold medals. Soon after the Seoul Olympics, Greg's father succumbs to cancer and Tom loosses his battle with AIDS. These tragic events inspire Greg to courageously go public with every aspect of hi life.
