This riveting documentary chronicles the life and adventures of 14-year-old Laura Dekker, who set out on a two-year voyage in pursuit of her dream to be the youngest person ever to sail around the world alone. In the wake of a year-long battle with Dutch authorities that sparked a global storm of media scrutiny, Laura found herself far from land and family, with unwanted attention, exploring the world in search of freedom, adventure, and distant dreams of her early youth at sea. “Maidentrip” amplifies Laura’s brave, defiant voice through a mix of Laura's own video and recordings at sea and intimate vérité footage from locations including the Galapagos Islands, French Polynesia, Australia, and South Africa.
