No-one has succeeded in kayaking the length of the remote and stormy Aleutian Islands which stretch from Russia to Alaska. Explorers Justine Curgenven and Sarah Outen set out to paddle 2,500km along the archipelago to the nearest road confronting more than 20 long crossings which separate the tiny unpopulated islands. Sarah faces an even more formidable challenge as this is part of her round-the-world human powered journey and she has limited kayaking experience. Alone for 101 days in one of the windiest, roughest places on earth, these two women are swept away from land by unknown currents, pounded by rough seas and approached by bears. Experiencing an edge-of-your-seat journey, they gain a rare insight into themselves, the rich wildlife and the lives of the few people who live in this harsh yet beautiful landscape.

"The story of Justine and Sarah's 101 day ordeal is amazing, moving and, above all inspiring. My admiration is unbounded." - Ranulph Fiennes
"They traversed the Aleutian Islands, completing what was, in my mind, perhaps the greatest, as yet undone, technical sea kayak expedition in the world. The film is spectacular, full of high adventure, a touching friendship, and some of the most magnificent scenery on earth". - Jon Turk
"Superb filming to go with a superb adventure! Their film not only communicates the hardships and dangers of the expedition, but also conveys the rich backdrop of wildlife and culture in this region. A definite 5 stars." - Colin Angus
"Sarah and Justine make an engaging and inspiring pair. For this, an epic journey in one of the world's most inhospitable places, the relative kayaking newcomer and the experienced paddling filmmaker show what is possible through the power of unfaltering friendship and unwavering determination. A must-watch for adventure-lovers." Adventure Kayak magazine
