Directed by Baltasar Kormákur ('Everest', '2 Guns'), 'A drift' tells the inspiring real story of two free spirits whose chance encounter leads them first to love and then to the adventure of their lives. A couple who, at first, enjoyed a boat trip to Tahiti and will be caught in the middle of a hurricane. The woman, who is unconscious after the fateful incident, wakes up to discover that her boat is in ruins and that her boyfriend has disappeared. In order to find her partner again, the woman will travel more than 1,500 miles to Hawaii while fighting all the elements. Shailene Woodley ('Big Little Lies', 'The Fault in Our Stars', 'The Descendants') plays the brave protagonist.

Trivia Adrift

At first, the actor was associated to star in the film; however, he was replaced by Sam Clafin. More than 90% of the film was filmed at sea beginning some days at 4 o'clock in the morning. The film is based on the true story of Tami Oldham who, after becoming unconscious after being trapped in the worst hurricane in history in the Pacific Ocean, wakes up to discover that her partner is terribly injured and his ship has been destroyed.
