Storyline

Narrated by Joe Buck, Swimming to Ferguson is a documentary about racial tension and tragedy fused with "now what?" In the aftermath of the Ferguson riots, an affable St. Louis professor crosses the greatest divides to do his small part to break down the racial barriers found in his own St. Louis backyard. STF is a documentary about not about taking sides, but bridging divides, how any of us can be inspired by an ordinary guy who is determined to do extraordinary things like complete sport's most grueling achievement - the triple crown of open water swimming. Traversing the three legs of the triple crown is one of the rarest displays of athleticism on the planet. Many more people have summited Mount Everest than have successfully completed these three mountains of marathon swimming. Set against the fires of Ferguson, and the bone-chilling midnight waters of some of the most unforgiving spots on the planet, Swimming to Ferguson is a call to action for understanding, respectful dialogue...
