Synopsis

Once labeled a “youth-at-risk,” 30-year old Matt Rutherford risked it all in an attempt to become the first person to sail alone, nonstop around North and South America. On an old, scrappy 27-foot sailboat he spent 309 days alone at sea. He braved the icebergs of the Arctic and the treacherous waters off Cape Horn. Before he left, professional sailors called him crazy and declared his proposed 27,000-mile journey “a suicide mission”. But Rutherford proved them wrong. He brought back remarkable video footage and audio logs, raised $120,000 for charity, and entered the record books. ‘Red Dot on the Ocean: The Matt Rutherford Story’ is the story of Matt’s death-defying voyage and the childhood odyssey that shaped him. His story is full of surprises and makes us all feel we can do more than we ever imagined...
