Based on the incredible true story of amateur sailor Donald Crowhurst (Colin Firth), and his attempt to win the first single-handed round-the-world yacht race in 1968. Crowhurst entered the Sunday Times Golden Globe race, partly as an opportunity to publicise a new navigation device he had been working on. He fitted another of his inventions, a stability system, to his untested trimaran and set off to on his solo mission to circumnavigate the globe. Leaving his family behind, his inexperience and loneliness found him confronted with dramatic struggles and acute isolation alone on the high seas. A haunting tale of a man going to sea and the family he leaves behind.
