Synopsis

Set against the backdrop of the turbulent 1960s, Deep Water is the stunning true story of Donald Crowhurst, a free-thinking electronics inventor who enters the most daring nautical race ever, the very first Sunday Times Golden Globe solo, non-stop, round-the-world yacht race.
 
Crowhurst - driven by a desire to prove to the world that with the help of his revolutionary invention, an on-board computer, one could sail the seas effortlessly - readies his trimaran to set sail by the late summer deadline.
 
As the race progresses, Crowhurst's reports of his positions at sea put him as the clear leader on elapsed time. Headline after headline is being printed - not just in Britain but across the world. Crowhurst is fast becoming the darling of the media, hailed as a nautical wonder.
 
But as the world waits on tenterhooks for this extraordinary man to cross the finishing line and sail into port to a hero's welcome,  the jaw-dropping truth is revealed.
