In 1874, the British collier Euxine was en route to Yemen when she was abandoned in the South Atlantic. Three longboats set course for St. Helena, but only two arrived. The third was found after twenty-two days at sea. The film is a reimagining of the events that caused the sailors’ descent into a savage struggle for survival.
