This Academy Award-winning documentary follows Norwegian explorer, filmmaker and writer Thor Heyerdahl on his highly publicized 1947 sea expedition. Heyerdahl, along with five other crewmen, set sail in a wooden raft designed to duplicate what the ancient Incas might have used to sail from Peru to Polynesia. The goal of Heyerdahl's bold journey is to validate his own disputed theory -- that South American natives could have settled Polynesia's many islands.
