Is your docstring longer than 200 lines?
This is from python syntax file 'vim58/syntax/python.vim'.

" This is fast but code inside triple quoted strings screws it up. It
" is impossible to fix because the only way to know if you are inside a
" triple quoted string is to start from the beginning of the file. If
" you have a fast machine you can try uncommenting the "sync minlines"
" and commenting out the rest.
syn sync match pythonSync grouphere NONE "):$"
syn sync maxlines=200
"syn sync minlines=2000
