Item Details

Three lone sailors, each pursuing a solitary dream, are swept up in the open ocean by a monster hurricane that confounds all predictions, traveling east instead of west through the Caribbean. Incredibly, even as the eye wall of the storm roars overhead with 150-mile-per-hour winds, the three boats wind up in the same small patch of ocean.
