Shot on location during the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, OLYMPIC DREAMS invites viewers inside the Athlete Village, where a heart-racingly intimate tale of human connection plays out amidst the pressure-cooker environment of the games. 
Penelope (Alexi Pappas) is a cross country skier who, following a disappointing finish, finds herself adrift with no clear purpose. Ezra (BIG MOUTH and THE LEAGUE’s Nick Kroll)—on a reluctant break from his fiancée in New Jersey—is a volunteer dentist searching for adventure in South Korea. Over the course of the games, the two forge a surprising bond—but is it love, or just mutual loneliness? Featuring a supporting cast of international athletes, OLYMPIC DREAMS is a by turns funny and bittersweet tale of two lost souls learning to embrace the unknown.
