This biopic tells the story of Donald Crowhurst, an amateur sailor who, in 1968, took part in the Golden Globe Race with the hope of becoming the first person in history to single-handedly circumnavigate the globe without stopping. Leaving his nervous family behind, Crowhurst is neither adequately prepared or qualified for such an extraordinary mission, particularly as his supposed ‘uncapsizable’ boat is self-designed and not properly tested. Perhaps inevitably, Crowhurst soon runs into trouble, alone and adrift in the middle of the ocean, desperately trying to stay alive. Before long he finds himself lying over the radio about his circumstances, his mental state deteriorating and his situation ever more precarious.
After a collision with a shipping container at sea, a resourceful sailor finds himself staring his mortality in the face.
