Maiden takes you through the fierce and dramatic story of Tracy Edwards. In 1989, just 24, she decides to compete in the Whitbread, the most famous sailing race around the world, with a 100 % female crew. A revolution at the time, as she not only has to take on the dangers of the sea but also confront the values of a sport that until then, was forbidden to women. A very inspiring movie about the power of one’s faith, courage, and willingness to challenge the norm. Must sea !
