After the doctors saved her leg from being amputated, Kimberley Chambers was given a 1% probability of walking unassisted…but after defying those odds through rehabilitative swimming, Kim aimed for an even smaller percentage….as one of only 7 people in the world to ever complete the Ocean Seven Challenge, a series of long- distance, open-water marathon swims around the world. This incredible film follows along with Kim as she attempts to be the first woman to swim the 30-mile stretch of cold, rough, shark-inhabited waters off the San Francisco Coast. While the personal interviews give us a glimpse into Kim’s motivations to face her fears and continuously challenge herself, the spectacular cinematography allows us to accompany Kim on her breathtaking journey from the Farallon Islands to the Golden Gate Bridge and vicariously experience the thrilling risks and joyous triumph.
