Adventure turns into survival when Jamie, a backpacking Scot with more regrets than postcards, teams up with three fellow travellers on what should be the highlight of his round-the-world trip: a self-guided boat tour of the Hawaiian islands. Yet, given his rapidly blossoming relationship with local entrepreneur, Lini, not to mention his complete lack of nautical skills, he’s not even sure he should be leaving Oahu.
However, the high seas and romance are only half the issue. His crewmates inspire confidence and concern in equal measure. Is Anna really as cold and detached as she acts? Does Tommy, her boyfriend and vlog partner, really live his life on the edge at all times? And just who is Nassim – an ex-French Foreign Legion mercenary or sensitive photographic artist?
The adventure they sell themselves quickly becomes a whole lot more than just another blog update when things go badly wrong for them at sea. What lies ahead of them tests their mental and physical resolve, as well as their belief in each other and themselves.
As adversity turns into tragedy, they encounter a mysterious American castaway. Seemingly self-sufficient and isolated from the world, he shows them a new way of life, far removed from the madness they left behind.
Join Jamie and the others for a Pacific Ocean adventure that takes them from glorious highs to unfathomable lows and everywhere in between.
