In the summer of 1973, five men and six women embarked on a 101-day sea adventure on a raft drifting across the Atlantic. In a experiment initiated by Mexican anthropologist Santiago Genovés, the group set out to explore the origins of violence and the dynamics of sexual attraction. Genovés handpicked each crew member with the aim of mixing religion, gender and nationality to maximise friction on board.
Through extraordinary archive material and a reunion of the surviving members of the expedition on a full scale replica of the raft, this film tells the hidden story behind what has been described as 'one of the strangest group experiments of all time.'
