13 year old Laura Dekker hit the world’s headlines when her daring dream to sail around the world alone was thwarted by the Dutch courts. A year later she won the right to set sail. Jillian Schlesinger’s debut feature tells the story of this remarkable two-year voyage using a mix of Laura’s own video shot at sea and footage from the various locations around the world where she weighs anchor including the Galapagos Islands, French Polynesia, Australia, and South Africa.
