Storyline

The vessel is Infinity, a 120-foot hand-built sailboat, crewed by a band of miscreants. The journey, an 8,000 mile Pacific crossing from New Zealand to Patagonia, with a stop in Antarctica. Unlike all the other boats heading to the Southern Ocean, Infinity is no ice-reinforced super-yacht crewed by professional sailors; rather, Infinity lives in the moment and sails on a whim. What can be found in abundance on board is blood, sweat, enthusiasm, risk tolerance, disdain for authority, and an ample supply of alcohol - all in all a mad voyage of reckless adventure just for the sheer joy of it. Along the way the crew will battle a hurricane of ice in the Ross Sea, assist the radical environmental group Sea Shepherd in their fight with illegal whalers, and tear every sail they have. At the heart of their journey is a quest for awe and a sense of wonder with the raw power of the natural world.

Interesting Travelogue
13 October 2017 | by bigverybadtomSee all my reviews

A group of rather irresponsible people, some with small children, band together to take a rather random trip to Antarctica and then to Chile. Using an adventure boat its original builder never completed, they build it up and scrape up money to make the trip. But the crew cannot be too irresponsible-the journey requires great know-how and very hard work and will go into very dangerous waters indeed, where all sorts of possible dangers can await.

The movie concentrates mostly on the crew itself and how they have to work and know exactly what to do and when to do it. Those who are expecting a lot of nature photography are going to be disappointed. But the movie succeeds in making the point that being a gypsy is definitely not a life of ease.
