Where It Gets Interesting, Diana Nyad From Cuba To Florida

Where It Gets Interesting, Diana Nyad From Cuba To Florida

WIGS produced this documentary on Diana Nyad, appropriately called Diana.

WIGS, a digital channel that produces high-end, original, scripted dramatic series and short films about the lives of extraordinary women. Diana is about 62-year-old Diana Nyad, an iron-willed swimmer determined to realize her dream by swimming from Cuba to Florida.

Iron will is an understatement when talking about these special ultra-marathon swimmers. Individuals who can physiologically and psychologically handle swimming for more than 24 hours in a harshly dynamic environment where their self-imposed suffering is done in an lonely and isolated manner.
