An extraordinary and inspiring true story of courage, strength, and friendship. Based on the New York Times non-fiction best-seller, best friends Nick Schuyler (Miles Teller) and Will Bleakley, and NFL players Marquis Cooper and Corey Smith, depart Clearwater, Florida for a day trip at their favorite fishing spot 70 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico. As a severe storm heads their way, a trapped anchor and a tragic mistake in trying to free it causes their boat to capsize, throwing the four friends violently into the freezing water. In one of the most heartbreaking survival stories ever told, they battle massive waves, violent weather, dehydration, hallucinations, severe hypothermia and even sharks in their epic struggle to survive and return home to their distraught loved ones. The U.S. Coast Guard, beaten back in its air and sea rescue efforts, summons its largest ship in a heroic last-ditch effort to cut through the fierce storm and find survivors. Forty-three harrowing hours after leaving Clearwater, only Nick is finally spotted barely alive with a tale to tell beyond belief.
