humanLIMITS tells engaging stories of inspirational humans pushing their physical and mental boundaries to the "limits" - from swimming the most dangerous rivers in the world to withstanding excruciating cold beyond what was thought humanly possible. No one would expect a young audience to relate to and empathize with an overweight, out of shape, swimmer from Slovenia in his 60's, but that is exactly what happened with Martin Strel in his episode of humanLIMITS. To overcome this challenge we specifically told his story in a way which encouraged the audience to relate the material to their own lives and viewpoint. By swimming the longest rivers on the planet Martin aims to raise awareness of the world's useable water shortage, an imminent crisis which affect us all.
