Margate Film Festival: Against The Tides, Tom Thumb Theatre, Saturday, 26. October 2019







The story of an extraordinary woman attempting one of the most extreme swimming challenge. As she battles with the dangers of seven seas, her journey takes a dramatic turn.
Open-water swimmer Beth French wants to swim across seven of the world’s most dangerous sea-channels – an extreme challenge called Oceans Seven – and do it in record time: within one year.
Driven to set an example for her autistic son and by her battle with a life-long debilitating illness, Beth travels to far-flung corners of the world confronting jellyfish, sharks, wild weather, hypothermia and mind-numbing fatigue.
But, in an unpredictable and emotional climax, Beth’s burning desire to conquer the open sea comes into heart-rending conflict with a mother’s dreams for her son.
