About the Film
The film follows Omar Samra and Omar Nour—the ‘Team O2’ duo—as they embark on the world’s toughest rowing race: an unsupported 3,000-nautical-mile adventure across the Atlantic Ocean. The aim of their journey is to highlight the terrifying dangers faced by thousands of migrants who set to sea every year. When disaster strikes, Team O2 has only hours to live. In Beyond the Raging Sea, the two Omars recount, in their own voice, the gripping tale of their struggle to survive and their ultimate rescue by a Greek vessel.
