"I believe that
it's our duty to reach as far as we can reach, to extend the edge
of our capabilities in some way no matter the cost."
Fifty-three year old businessman Dodge Morgan had made a promise to himself: one day he would attempt what few others have dared -- to sail around the world without stopping and alone. This inspiring adventure story shows how he realized that dream aboard "American Promise".
Using automatic cameras, Dodge films his own at-sea journey. The viewer is his only confidante as he confronts his fears and copes with loneliness, gear failures, fierce gales, the mountainous seas of the Southern Ocean, the frustrating days of no wind and no progress. Totally isolated and dependant on himself for survival, he is forced to find new emotional strength to persevere. Dodge Morgan's determination brings him home victorious after 150 days at sea. He shatters the old record and becomes the first American to sail solo, non-stop around the world. This film celebrates the fulfillment of his promise.
