Throughout history, the Great Lakes have heralded both tragedy and renewal for thousands of people. These are the stories of those who have overcome those trials and discovered themselves along the way.
"I grew up playing along the cliffs on the north shore of Lake Erie. When swimming in the lake the most repeated warning our mom gave us was “beware the under tow!” It wasn’t until decades later, when I met Nathan MacIntyre, that I discovered that the under tow was not the real danger; it was the rip current. After that I made it a point to get to know Nathan and subsequently learned about his incredibly compelling personal story. How many other stories were there out there like his? Stories of people who faced what the Great Lakes had handed them and grew stronger as a result? How was it that this series had not yet been done? That thought was my first signal and I’ve been focused on producing it ever since." ~Bryan
