Touched by the Ocean

Touched by the Ocean, "Ookeani puudutus"

Synopsis

Director

14 years ago he couldn’t even dream of doing something like that – especially as the first Estonian –, something that most people in the world are not capable of doing – to learn to swim at the age of 29 and aspire to swim from Europe to Africa 14 years later is more than anybody with a sound mind can imagine.

The documentary film „Touched by the Ocean“ tells a story of a man who has loads of willpower, a big heart and is crazy enough to swim from Europe to Africa in order to cross the punishing Strait of Gibraltar. All that for a good and gallant cause.

Does this journey have a happy ending, which obstacles he meets and which sea creatures he has to swim with? You will see all that at the premiere.
