The healing power of the sea
The Current, the documentary, was filmed during April in the most beautiful sceneries in land and sea of the island of Cozumel, in the Mexican Caribbean. It is an extraordinary documentary about the lives of three wonderful characters, the love they profess for life, the strength of their spirit... and the healing power of the sea.
The Current tells the real story of three extraordinary men: Jesse Murphree, American, former Marin featured in Afghanistan, who due to an accident suffered the amputation of both legs; David Hosick, American high performance athlete, who, after a terrible game of rugby, was paralyzed from the chest down, with some almost normal mobility in an arm and limited movement in the other; and Leo Morales, Mexican diver who suffered cancer and because of this, his right leg had to be dismantled.
What could be considered as a disability has become a source of strength and greatness of spirit for these heroes. And the three of them discovered that underwater, any disability is only in the mind, because inside the water, without the force of gravity, they are free to fly. The beautiful coral reefs and shipwrecks of the Great Maya reef –which runs between Cozumel and the territory of Quintana Roo– are the perfect set to reflect the underwater exploits of this great team of expert divers, led by Jean Michel Cousteau (son of the famous oceanographer Jacques Cousteau), who accompanies them on their underwater adventure and by Kurt Miller, American businessman and director of Make a Hero, a non-profit Association, producer and film director. □
