Before THE PERFECT STORM, CAST AWAY, or 127 HOURS, Steven Callahan’s dramatic tale of survival at sea was on the New York Times bestseller list for more than thirty-six weeks. Considered one of the “Top 100 Greatest Adventures in American History” by Smithonian Magazine (2016), Steven’s non-fiction book remains a favorite on Amazon.
In some ways the model for the new wave of adventure stories, Steven’s book is an undeniable seafaring classic. A riveting firsthand account of a man known to have survived more than 2 months alone at sea, fighting for his life in an inflatable raft after his small sailboat capsized. He spent 76 Days floating on the leaking raft, drifting completely across the Atlantic Ocean.
In the spirit of films like TOUCHING THE VOID, 76 DAYS dives into a first-hand account with Steven and his tale at sea. No food or water, a raft riddled with holes, shark attacks. How did he survive and where did he find the will to go on? Ships passed him and a plane flew over his head, but he remained heartbreakingly unseen. Steven still possesses many of the original artifacts, including his journal and the spear he made, as he takes us step-by-step through his agonizing and life-altering adventure.
Original Super 8 footage has been discovered of Steven’s first part of his famous voyage, as he crosses from Rhode Island to Great Britain in his 21-foot sailboat, Napoleon Solo.
The spellbinding interview with Steven and spectacular first-person recreation bring the incredulous details of Steven’s survival to life.
