ADRIFT

Category: Edition 2018

Sinossi
Tami Oldham and her boyfriend Richard Sharp sail from Tahiti under a marvelous starry sky; they are young and in love, dreaming of a life of adventures together. After a few days, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, a hurricane of terrifying proportions crashes on their ship, causing Tami to lose consciousness. When she wakes up, Tami finds the ship destroyed and her boyfriend gravely injured. With no means of communications and with the closest port being weeks away, Tami has to fight against time to save herself and the only man she has ever truly loved. Based on a true story, ADRIFT is a deeply moving and engaging, a story of lobe, determination and courage against any impossible adversity.
