  • The Dive: A Story of Love and Obsession The Dive: A Story of Love and Obsession
    Pipin Ferreras
    This is the story of free-divers Pipin Ferreras and Audrey Mestre. It is in many ways a classic love story with a couple of twists: man meets woman, falls in love, and introduces her to the thing he's dedicated his life to--the same thing that kills her. It's also a concise history of the sport of free-diving and an introduction to many of its key participants. And it is, perhaps most of all, a story of a man's addiction to a lethal activity that has already killed the woman he loved.
