On paper, it’s the romantic adventure of a lifetime – a man, a woman, and nothing but the open ocean.
But life always has other plans.
When Tami (Shailene Woodley) and her boyfriend Richard (Sam Claflin) are given the chance to sail a luxury boat halfway across the world, they see it as an incredible opportunity. After all, what could be better than cruising on a perfect blue sea with the love of your life by your side?
However, visions of perfection soon turn to terror when news filters through the scratchy speakers in the cabin of the boat – there’s a storm on the horizon, and they’re headed straight into the heart of it, with no time to turn back.
That storm develops into an historic hurricane, and its wrath is devastating. During the crippling onslaught wind, rain, and towering black waves, Tami is knocked unconscious and wakes to find the boat in ruins and Richard’s injured body in even worse condition.
Desperate to save the man she loves, yet more alone than ever before, Tami must look deep inside herself and find the strength to do the impossible – survive the sea.
Directed by Baltasar Kormákur (Everest, The Deep), this adventure-drama is based on the true story of Tami Oldham and Richard Sharp. Shailene Woodley (The Fault in our Stars, Snowden) stars as the woman who must overcome nature’s unfavourable odds, while Sam Claflin (My Cousin Rachel, Me Before You) plays the man she is desperate to save.
