An extraordinary marathon swimmer, Beth French, sets out to complete Oceans Seven, the ultimate swimming challenge. Beth, driven to set an example for her autistic son and by her battle with lifelong illness M.E. (a.k.a. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), travels across continents to far-flung corners of the world. She confronts jellyfish, sharks, hypothermia, wild weather and mind-numbing fatigue, along with demons from her past. As her dramatic journey nears its end, Beth’s burning desire to conquer the open sea comes into heart-rending conflict with a mother’s dreams for her son in an unpredictable and emotional climax.
