At the doors of the Olympic Games in Rio, Richard Oribe, the best swimmer of all times with cerebral palsy, faces the final stretch of a life filled with challenges. His personal achievement stands in stark contrast to the bleak expectations placed on him by his parents at birth. Richard Oribe, al otro lado de las medallas is a documentary about Richard’s life. A man marked by severe physical and communication limitations who, against all odds, managed to achieve unimaginable goals in his childhood and generate empathy and affection from the people around him.
