The remote and stormy Aleutian chain stretches from Russia to Alaska, with more than 20 long crossings separating tiny unpopulated islands. In 2014, two women attempted to be the first people to kayak 2,500km along the islands to the nearest road. Regularly spending over 16 hours on the water, with no realistic hope of outside help, they were swept away from land by strong currents, approached by bears, grounded by headwinds and caught out by rough seas. One woman was constantly terrified, having just learnt to roll her kayak. Over 101 days, they battle the elements, have incredible wildlife encounters and are given an insight into the lives of the few people who live in this harsh and beautiful landscape. This is the shorter film festival version of the film. There's also a 70 minute Directors Cut.
