After surviving a plane hijacking, anthropologist Santiago Genovés was determined to uncover the root of human violence. In an unprecedented experiment, he brought together 11 volunteers, young men and women from all around the world, and set sail with them across the Atlantic on a raft. Out at sea, he pushed the group to extremes to find out whether aggression resulted from nature or nurture.
101 days long, the voyage was tense and challenging. 43 years later, reunited on a specially recreated model of the raft, the crew members try to piece together their experiences. Cleverly intercutting the reunion with footage from the original, 1973 voyage, the film touches on issues of sexual tension, racism, manipulation, and even murderous thoughts.
