Audaciously taking a dare to prove his theory that South Americans could have reached Polynesia in the pre-Columbian era, Norwegian adventurer Thor Heyerdahl (Pal Sverre Hagen) assembled a small crew─and a balsa raft─for the 4,300 mile journey in 1947, as recounted in his best-selling memoir.

Widescreen; Soundtracks: Norwegian DTS HD 5.1 Master Audio, Dolby Digital 5.1; Subtitles: English (SDH), Spanish; featurettes. In Norwegian with English subtitles. Two-disc set.
