This is an illustrative animation based on the experience my parents made while swimming in the Atlantic ocean unguarded. Although the beach was very close to them the current pulled them further into the sea and they almost drowned. Only pure will and instinct could save them eventually.
Adding a soundscape and Alan Silvestri's beautiful Cast Away Theme I visualized the voice recording of my mum telling her story (German mother tongue).
The message: Never give up, even though your situation seems hopeless. You can make it if you fight for it.
