On June 1st, 2008, Marcus Eriksen and Joel Paschal embarked from California for Hawaii aboard a plastic bottle raft. Without a motor or support vessel, the duo set out determined to raise awareness about the proliferation of plastic waste in our seas. Guided by Eriksen’s first-person narration, viewers will be transported from the North Pacific to war-torn Kuwait, down the Mississippi River, and back again as the raft’s origins are revealed and a movement is born.
