The 210-day sailing trip around the world by Jessica Watson is documented in the book 'True Spirit'. Despite being only 16 years old at the time, she covered more than 22,000 nautical miles. Although many people view her epic journey as a victorious accomplishment, it was undoubtedly not without difficulties. She had to battle with everything from gale-force winds to deadly icebergs to intense loneliness. The film charts her development from a typical young girl to someone with the strength, courage, and tenacity to chase her aspirations.


What is the buzz around 'True Spirit'?

As the movie is coming close to its premiere, Watson told ABC News that it was surreal to look back at her historic achievement as an adult. "It's odd, right? It's weird. I'm a completely different person. So much has happened and so much time has passed," she said. Looks like after the release of the book, Watson's story will find a global audience very soon through Netflix.
