Synopsis

Yann Kermadec, long-time first mate of Franck Drevil, the star skipper of Global System Insurance, sees his dream come true when he replaces the injured Franck at the last minute for the start of Vendée Globe (a 3-month-long race around the world, with each yacht steered by a sole captain). Nine days into the race and leading, Yann is forced to stop in the Canary Islands to repair his damaged ship. Back in the race, Yann discovers a stowaway on board, a Mauritanian teenager named Mano. Faced with the risk of disqualification because of Mano’s presence, Yann hesitates... Their encounter leads to the most unforgettable round-the-world race ever.
