As a 17-year-old teenager, Jesse Martin set out on a journey to fulfil a dream few thought possible. By circumnavigating the world in his 34-foot yacht Lionheart, Jesse would become the youngest person in history to sail around the world solo, nonstop and unassisted.
It is an intimate record of his days alone at sea, transporting viewers onto the deck of Lionheart through Jesse’s unique and candid approach to filming. From the joy of watching dolphins chase Lionheart to the dramatic moments as Jesse battles terrifying storms and unrelenting knockdowns, this documentary captures all the highs and lows of his incredible journey.
