In Detail

Egyptian extreme athletes Omar Samra and Omar Nour enter the world’s toughest rowing race: the Atlantic Challenge, an unsupported 3,000 mile open-ocean race from the Canary Islands to Antigua, despite neither having experience on open water.

The athletes trained for an entire year before embarking on the voyage in a high-tech unsinkable rowboat, which they dedicate to the plight of refugees worldwide for whom unimaginable peril, exposure and even death at sea comes to tens of thousands annually.
