Four Strokes of Luck



In a race against time, three Australians and one Bolivian must invent a boat powered by motorbikes to cross a dangerous passage of sea. Their plan is so ambitious, their only chance of survival is success. Living at the end of the last road in Colombia, they rush to shoehorn their motorbikes into a washed-up boat before hurricane season arrives. In the dangerous port town, the threat of kidnap and murder by the Colombian Revolutionary Army (the FARC) is frightening real. Working alongside locals, every day is nerve-racking. They plan to sail 200km through the deceptively beautiful waters of the Caribbean to the first road in Panama. A simple goal, with exceptional risks. The journey is beyond travelling. It is life and death, heaven and hell, pleasure and pain. Fishing for food, marooned on islands and being held captive push the team to breaking point. But then, creating history has never been easy.
