This documentary focuses on two very different competitors in the 1968 solo round-the-world yacht race. Bernard Moitessier, in days of deep reflection, finds himself; while Donald Crowhurst, a desperate man, decides to pretend he's - then can't go through with his deception. Both families contribute to this moving memoir of the impact of isolation and the overwhelming desire to succeed.
