In the aftermath of the Ferguson riots, a St. Louis native Henry Biggs takes a unique approach to ford the great racial divide, swimming 28 miles around Manhattan to raise $120,000 for the Ferguson area. Narrated by Joe Buck, Swimming to Ferguson is a documentary about racial tension and tragedy and the impossible divide between perspectives—with a call to do the impossible and bridge that divide. Intriguingly mashing the fires of Ferguson with Biggs' bone-chilling ocean swims, Swimming to Ferguson is a call to action for understanding, respectful dialogue—and peace. Biggs ultimately attempts to complete open-water swimming's rare triple crown: the English Channel, circling Manhattan and the Catalina Channel.
