Storyline

On the surface, THE SWIMMER is about the ultimate physical challenge - a battle between man and nature. But underneath the water's fury, THE SWIMMER's true journey is challenging oneself to accept the past, and to make way for forgiveness and new beginnings. Adrenaline junkie RICHARD MORGAN (late 30's), has a dangerous hobby. He's an extreme swimmer who travels the world in search of the wildest and most beautiful rivers he can find. But something deeper drives this loner to battle nature's most unforgiving waters... Written by The Swimmer LLC
