For Young Audiences
15-year-old Laura Dekker sets out – 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 a global storm of media scrutiny, Laura now finds herself far from land, family, and unwanted attention, exploring the world in search of freedom, adventure, and distant dreams of her early youth at sea.
