Stephen Redmond from West Cork was the first person ever to complete the world famous "Ocean’s Seven" challenge. This film looks at the beauty and the poetry of Stephen’s passion and touches on the lives of the people he loves and those he has lost. It delves into the peculiar, solitary psyche of an open-water swimmer who spends much of his time immersed in a world underwater.
