THE OTHER SHORE follows world record holder and legendary swimmer Diana Nyad as she comes out of a thirty-year retirement to re-attempt an elusive dream: swimming 103 miles non-stop from Cuba to Florida without the use of a shark cage. Her past and present collide in her obsession with a feat that nobody has ever accomplished. At the edge of The Devil's Triangle, tropical storms, sharks, venomous jellyfish, and one of the strongest ocean currents in the world, all prove to be life-threatening realities. Timothy Wheeler's documentary brings Diana Nyad's extraordinary adventure to life as Diana sets out to prove that will and determination are all you need to make the unimaginable possible.

Highly recommend it+her book!

Fabulous story of 1 person against the odds of nature/our ocean & its inhabitants....I also read her book which provides great detail to watching this documentary. I recommend both and only wish I could hear Ms. Nyad speak in a lecture.

Great movie, the only drawback was they spent so much time on her failed attempts, and very little on her successful journey. It was great to see her not give up and battle back from adversity. I just would have been exciting to see them spend at least equal time on her triumph.

We'll done documentary! But wish there had been some time spent on the final accomplishment- not just a minute or two!! The whole movie builds to this and you almost miss that she made it to Florida!! :(.

Filmmaker Messed Up

This would have been great, but the filmmaker quit before her successful last swim. If he didn't have faith with her, how could he be the right one to capture the moment? His documentary is great UNTIL the end when he films her quitting again, then suddenly washing up on shore a year later in Key West.
