In the highly exclusive Athlete Village at the Olympic Winter Games, Penelope (ALEXI PAPPAS), a young cross-country skier, befriends Ezra (NICK KROLL), a volunteer dentist, after a disappointing finish in her competition. Penelope and Ezra share a special, but limited time together.
OLYMPIC DREAMS is the first scripted film ever shot in an Athlete Village during the Olympic Games. OLYMPIC DREAMS stars Alexi Pappas, Nick Kroll, and real Winter Olympic athletes including Gus Kenworthy. In addition to being an actress and filmmaker, Alexi also competed at the Olympic Games Rio 2016. The entire film was shot by a one-person crew (JEREMY TEICHER) during the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018.
