The Mercy (2017) is an extraordinary and disturbing story of a man who is leaving the sea and the family he leaves behind. The film is based on the incredible story of Donald Crowhurst, an amateur sailor who competed in the 1968 “Sunday Times Golden Globe” race, hoping to become the first person in history to navigate around the globe without stopping. Crowhurst came in, partly as an opportunity to advertise a new navigation device he was working on. He mounted another invention of his untested craft, a stability system, and set out on his own journey of circumnavigation. With an unfinished boat, Donald leaves his wife, Clare, and their children, embarking hesitantly on an adventure on his boat, “Teignmouth Electron”. However, lack of experience and loneliness, I find Crowhurst facing dramatic struggles and acute isolation.
