    • Synopsis
    • August 9, 2006. The taiwanese fishing boat Koo’s 102, finds near the Marshall Islands, a boat adrift with three fishermen. What is extraordinary is they declare they have departed from San Blas, Mexico, on October 28th, 2005. This means 5 thousand miles and 9 months and 9 days adrift in the Pacific Ocean. On his first day on land Jesus declares: we survived by eating raw fish, capturing rain water and our faith in God.
      The veracity of their story is questioned from different angles: narcotrafficing, homosexuality, cannibalism. some even say is a political complot. Weeks later news TV shows report they have signed a contract with Joe Kissac to make a film on their story. Joe is convinced it a message from God he has the obligation to spread.
      Three years had pass since their rescue. Joe hasn’t got the investors for the story where he is a main character. Jesus, Salvador and Lucio survived the ocean, but now they must navigate the land, where more sophisticated and discreet dangers await.
      It appears they’ll be at the mercy of the currents for a while.
