Owen Browne, a Vietnam vet, embarks on a solo sail around the world, hoping to prove his courage and heroism and find out some things about himself. He is not an expert sailor, and to complicate matters further he is filming his voyage while, on land, a documentary filmmaker conducts interviews and shoots footage that will supplement Owen's work. In the process, the filmmaker falls in love with Owen's wife while, at sea, Owen and the sailboat become increasingly endangered.
