Based on true events, At the Mercy of the Sea is a docu drama in the style of United 93. A US coast guard veteran leads efforts to rescue two solo sailors caught out by violent, fickle, superstorm Hurricane Lenny. But global warming makes this the first “wrong way” storm, and their attempts to evade it drive them further into danger, where the limits of their courage, skill and endurance are first reached and then broken.
