“One day some people swam across a sea and by doing it they saved it.” Mungeth Mehyar, Yusuf Matari and Oded Rahav long to be able to tell a similar story. The men hail from Palestine, Israel, and Jordan, all neighbors of the Dead Sea, which is threatening to dry up. To raise awareness, they decide to swim across it. Because of the conflicts between their home countries, it is not easy to find people for their project. The film follows them through a challenge that is both personal and political, and is above all a battle for our shared environment.
