On January 11, 2007, seasoned adventurer 39-year-old Andrew McAuley set out on his quest to become the first person to kayak from Australia to New Zealand across 1600km of one of the wildest and loneliest expanses of ocean on Earth: the Southern Ocean stretch of the Tasman Sea below the 40th parallel. Solo is an incredible story of adventure. It is a portrait of a complex man and his attempt to conquer the impossible. It is also a moving tragedy that questions and examines the extreme risk some adventurers are driven to pursue.
