Lysanne Richard is one of the world’s best competitive high divers but the 39 year-old Canadian mother of three is ready to start focusing on personal projects of her own. First on her list is a 22 meter high dive in the dead of winter, over a frozen lake, a feat that has never been done. But will it be enough? Or will she try to make the challenge even more difficult? Watch as she continuously tries to push the limit further and explore her reasons why.
