Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

From the producer of Touching the void and set against the backdrop of the turbulent sixties, Deep water is the stunning journey of Donald Crowhurst, a free thinking electronics inventor who enters the most daring nautical race ever - the Sunday Times Golden Globe solo, non-stop, round-the-world race.

Driven by his desire to prove to the world that with the help of his revolutionary invention, an on board computer, one could sail the seas effortlessly, Crowhurst manically and haphazardly readies his trimaran to set sail by the late summer deadline. As the race progresses Crowhurst reports his position which places him as the clear leader, and he quickly becomes a global tabloid darling.

As the world waits on tenterhooks for this extraordinary man to cross the finish line and sail into port to a hero's welcome, the jaw-dropping truth is revealed.
