Joseph Fiennes stars in this indie drama as a man on a personal journey. Paul (Fiennes) is a widower who enlists the assistance of his friends Liz (Elizabeth Reaser) and Jeff (Justin Kirk) to accomplish an ambitious mission: to swim 150 miles of the Hudson River, arriving in New York City on the fifth anniversary of the death of his wife and unborn daughter. But as the journey unfolds, Liz and Jeff discover that Paul's motivations for completing the mission are less straightforward than they first seemed. The film was an official selection of the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.
