14-year-old Laura Dekker sets out – with camera in hand – on a two-year voyage in pursuit of her dream to be the youngest person ever to sail around the world alone. In the wake of a year-long battle with Dutch authorities that sparked media scrutiny around the world, Laura finds herself far from land, family and unwanted attention, exploring the world in search of freedom, adventure, and distant dreams of her early childhood at sea.
Jillian Schlesinger’s debut film amplifies Laura’s brave, defiant voice through a mix of Laura’s own video and voice recordings at sea and footage from locations including the Galapagos Islands, French Polynesia, Australia, and South Africa.
