“Learn To Swim” … A deep dive into the intimate, creative mind of an Actor …..

Dezi… Played by an extraordinarily talented rising star from Canada: Thomas Antony Olajide gives an award winning performance in Director Thyrone Tommys’ “Learn To Swim,” an Independent film that tells the story of an emotionally broken, albeit genius Jazz musician trying to survive love, and the music industry in the 21st century.
