"Deep Breath" is a story of a man, from the cold North, who approaches total control over body and mind. On the 2nd November 2002, Finnish diver Topi Lintukangas dove in Italy deeper than anyone else in the world without fins or any propulsive aid. The dive that lasted for 1 min 59 seconds took Topi down to 60 meters and back to the surface again. This is 12 times as deep as one can dive in a swimming pool. The Finn bettered the record of Jamaican David Lee by 9 meters, which is a stunning accomplishment.
