"Black Swan Story" follows Joel Pott, singer with British indie rock band Athlete, retracing his grandfathers footsteps in Arnhem. Joel's grandfather, Major John Pott, was a British Paratrooper who fought in the Battle of Arnhem, World War 2. His mission was to reach the bridge at Arnhem, which his brother Major John Frost was heroically holding against tremendous odds (he was played by Anthony Hopkins in the film "A Bridge Too Far"). But Major John Pott was shot en-route. As he lay there wounded, he wrote a letter home to his wife. This documentary film, packed with great music from Athlete, follows Joel and his father David on an emotional road trip of discovery.
