In one of the most harrowing true stories of World War II, three US Navy airmen crash land their torpedo bomber in the South Pacific and find themselves on a tiny life raft, surrounded by open ocean. No food. No water. No hope of rescue. Against incredible odds, these three virtual strangers must survive storms, sharks, starvation - and each other - as they try to sail more than a thousand miles to safety.

Very tense storyline. Found it insightful too. Would watch it again.

Tense true event 1942. This goes to demonstrate how poorly prepared we were for WWII and the great strides made from the errors of the time. This might help the public understand the rigors of military service & the tremendous need to carefully screen applicants. I was often unable to look for fear of the danger so evident. Don't read any spoilers. Comparing this to recently seen 'All Is Lost' this is much better IMO.

Average movie about survival in the Pacific in World War II. Theses pilots were really stuck, and there ingenuity in this situation was interesting.
