The Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth, a unique salt-lake known for its exceptional geographical, biological, and historical value. It is also, tragically, drying up, due to overconsumption and poor water management among the Israelis, Jordanians, and Palestinians who share it and who will not come together to save it. So it is that three men – an Israeli, a Palestinian, and a Jordanian – decide to swim across the Dead Sea from Jordan to Israel, an unprecedented, extremely dangerous act meant to draw the world’s attention to the plight of the vanishing Sea. This is their story.
