438 DAYS: AN EXTRAORDINARY TRUE STORY OF SURVIVAL AT SEA

Synopsis

In November 2012, Salvador Alvarenga left the coast of Mexico on a fishing trip. A vicious storm killed his engine and the current dragged his boat out to sea, carrying him deep into the heart of the Pacific Ocean. Alvarenga would not touch solid ground again for 14 months. When he was washed ashore in January 2014, he had drifted over 9,000 miles.
