Waking up on a cold, winter Vancouver morning, most people choose to stay inside sipping their steaming coffee. This is not the case for Roberta Cenedese, as her mornings look drastically different. Instead, she wakes up and heads for the ocean to dive into the frigid waters of the Pacific Northwest, only wearing a bathing suit. Through triumph and failure, Roberta trains for one of the most challenging feats in action sports; an ice mile in three degree water. Join resident seals on this gripping and adventurous journey, where Roberta’s intimate connection with the Salish Sea is front and center.
