Rio, a 30-minute documentary about an open-water swimmer



He is neither the fastest nor the strongest swimmer, but driven by commitment and determination, Anthony McCarley, a 60-year-old American swimmer, decides to go on a quest for a unique achievement: swimming across the Río de la Plata (River Plate), from Uruguay to Argentina, and doing the coastal swim Leme ao Pontal in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Through these challenges, we get to know the man behind the swimmer. Anthony McCarley’s motivations go beyond the sporting achievement. RIO tells the story of someone overcoming adversity and pursuing personal growth.
