Storyline

Jack and Claire Carpenter realize his life-long dream by selling the family farm and uprooting their four kids to buy the yacht Providence. Sons Gary, Brian and Timmy give it an honest try and daughter Susan decides to take a job in a port. Her place is taken by Wally Hudson, who wanted a lift to Tahiti and proves a spoiled brat, without the sailing experience he claimed. Shortly after sighting whales, they are hit by a whole group and sink, too fast to think of sending a radio message. Their inflatable raft is too small for six people and supplies are only for a day or three. To get 1,000 miles further, where sea traffic is far more likely to find them, Jack designs a sail. Everything proves hard, even the rain they desperately longed for, but the boys show great courage. Only after weeks Susan gets a search started. Written by KGF Vissers

Shows the human spirit at its best.
3 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recorded this movie when it originally aired on abc and have watched it over and over again, this movie is robert urich at his best, i really love this movie and have to say its in my top 10 of the best telemovies ever made, now i would watch anything robert urich has been in, urich has always impressed me as an actor since id seen him as dan tanna in the TV drama VEGA$, but this movie shows the human spirit at its best, and I don't think I'm the only person who cried when they finally were rescued, unfortunately though its in my top 10 of the best it must not be in everyone else's top 10 otherwise it would be available on DVD/VHS which it is not, i do have it on VHS and although its a good copy its not in stereo as it was not recorded on a stereo vcr, i have looked for it on TV since its original airing and have not seen it, id love to see it come out on DVD. Robert Urich we will miss you.
