In 1973, Spanish-Mexican anthropologist Santiago Genoves conceived the Acali Experiment. He brought together 11 strangers from around the world and tasked them with crossing the Atlantic Ocean on a primitive raft in 100 days. This documentary looks back to the ill-fated trial and brings together the surviving subjects on an exact replica of the raft to offer their memories of the journey. These conflicting testimonies reveal the deep scars which the men and women bear more than 40 years later.
