The incredible true story of Donald Crowhurst, who attempted to circumnavigate the world in the Sunday Times Golden Globe race, only for it to end in disaster. An amateur sailor, his inexperience and loneliness at sea led to terrible physical struggles and an increasingly fraught mental state. He left his family behind to try and win this race, but would he ever see them again?  Colin Firth and Rachel Weisz star in this gripping drama of one man’s obsession and the wreckage he left in his wake.
