Sail. Survive. Succeed. 

The film charts the astonishing journey of Australian adventurer Lisa Blair, as she attempts to be the first woman to sail solo, non-stop, and unassisted around Antarctica. Equal parts ambitious and treacherous, this trip has only ever been completed twice. Blair aims to break the record for speed. 

Confidently conquering the most perilous parts of the journey, Blair’s confidence grows, but it is shattered when unexpected, life-threatening weather conditions cause catastrophe. She will need to dig into every ounce of courage, determination, and self-belief if she wants to finish this course and survive the most dangerous waters on the planet.
