In the two-part series "Waterwoman," one of the world's most successful freediver, Anna von Boetticher, visits regions shaped by water.

Off the Azores, she fearlessly leaps into the water with a group of blue sharks. Initially shocking for filmmaker Henning Rütten, who accompanies the intrepid adventurer on her journeys. The local, internationally sought-after underwater cameraman Nuno Sa tells us that millions of sharks are annually caught from the oceans, primarily for shark fin soup. Relentlessly hunted animals with which Anna comes into close contact.

In Iceland, the freediver is in search for the clearest water in the world. The famous Silfra fissure claims this superlative for itself. Anna initially had some reservations.
