Nick Ward is a young English sailor chasing a lifetime ambition, as he competes in one of the world’s elite yacht races. But out in the Celtic Sea, he and his crewmates find themselves caught in a once-in-a-generation storm. For hours they’ll fight together, side by side. But after one wave too many, Nick will be left to face this life-or-death struggle alone… A Noiser production, written by Dan Smith.
