Dead Sea Guardians

In DEAD SEA GUARDIANS, historic enemies join forces on a heroic journey to save the Dead Sea from disappearing due to catastrophic overconsumption and poor water management. The film follows three swimmers–Oded, an Israeli, Munqeth, a Jordanian, and Yusuf, a Palestinian–as they put together a group of international swimmers to attempt something that has never been done: swim across the Dead Sea from Jordan to Israel. As they set out to accomplish this extraordinary and dangerous feat in the hopes of gaining media exposure that will drive the region's countries to take action, they also confront the cultural differences and political realities that complicate their friendships. Oded, Yusuf and Munqeth must rise to meet these challenges, knowing that their steps of trust are the only way to create change and save the Dead Sea. One swim at a time.
