Great documentary, shows what you can do if you are bold, and have a generous heart with limited resources.

Beautiful film (literally and figuratively) about a beautiful person. Very inspirational.

This movie was a very pleasant surprise. I met Matt, briefly, at the Sailstice Encinal YC event a few years ago. I knew about his trip but like Herb McCormick, I was a skeptic and thought he was nuts. I came across this movie, last night and was actually blown away by the story. Fascinating portrait of a very interesting person.

Great Story!
Matt should be an inspiration to all young people.
Put down your phone.
Turn off that video game console.
Stop complaining about how everything is soooooooooo unfair.
Pry your lazy ass off the sofa and go do something with your life.
There is a whole world out there and you don't need anyone's permission to go find it.

Inspiring story, but also sad. How many kids are like Matt where the school tries to put a square peg into a round hole. My wife's kids, including herself, never completed their high school diplomas the traditional way. They dropped out and then self learned. Their IQ's are all around 200, which makes me the dunce of the family. Congratulations Matt and thank you for the uplifting story.

Very strong. That guy fought a lot of things that people take for granted. How many people reading this could handle 3 days isolated with no other human contact or speech? He did over 300 days.

Strong.

Great doc.

An awesome story with beautiful footage of places most of us will never experience. The story itself may help many young people who are confused about their place in the world realize that what others consider limitations may be your greatest strengths.

An inspiring story of a man's voyage through life and at sea and how he managed to get his act together after a difficult start.
