"Nominated for an Academy Award, Kon-Tiki tells the true story of Norwegian ethnographer and explorer Thor Heyerdahl who, in 1947, accompanied by an inexperienced crew drifted from Peru to Polynesia on a balsa wood raft to prove his theory that Polynesia was first populated by South Americans not Asians. The result of his journey saw Heyerdahl become an international legend. This epic, edge of your seat adventure sees the crew battling shark attacks, raging storms and razor sharp coral reefs."
