In this report, part of our collaboration with the Red Cross Folk High School, film students Hugo Carlsund and Linnéa Ekström meet three people who, in different ways, have found a calming power in the sea.

It is the story of a freediver, a surfer and a winter swimmer who all faced difficulties in life but found joy and energy in the sea.

The films ask how our well-being can be affected by the sea.
