WARNING: Watching this film will make you want to sell your earthly belongings and get the heck out of dodge. I very nearly put in my notice and it's not even 10am yet.

Local director/cinematographer Kevin A. Fraser and local producer Melani Wood struck documentary gold when they met David Welsford (caution: his website is just as deadly as the doc), 29-year-old Nova Scotian who restored an old wooden boat in order to sail the Caribbean. After slaying the festival circuit, today marks the film's online release. It's romantic and awesome and inspiring. Start packing that go bag.
