It screened out of competition at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival .

Redford was nominated for his own Golden Globe and won the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Actor .

Somewhere in the Indian Ocean , an unnamed man ( Robert Redford ) wakes to find water flooding his boat. He has collided with a wayward shipping container , ripping a hole in the hull . He uses a sea anchor to dislodge the container, then changes course to tilt the boat away from the hole. He patches the hole and uses the manual bilge pump to remove the water from the cabin.

The boat’s navigational and communications systems have been damaged by saltwater intrusion. The man tries to repair the marine radio and connects it to one of the boat's batteries but is unsuccessful. When he climbs the mast to repair an antenna lead, he sees an oncoming tropical storm . When the storm arrives, he runs before the wind . He intends to bring the boat into a hove-to position, but when crawling to the bow to hoist the storm jib , he is thrown overboard and regains the deck after a long struggle. The boat capsizes , turtles after a further 180-degree roll and is dis-masted, and most of the equipment is destroyed. With the boat badly holed and sinking, the man abandons ship in an inflatable life raft , salvaging whatever he can to survive.

As the man learns to operate a sextant , he discovers he is being pulled towards a major shipping lane by ocean currents . He survives another storm but his supplies dwindle, and he learns too late that his drinking water has been contaminated with sea water. He improvises a solar still from his water container and a plastic bag to produce freshwater.

The man is passed by two container ships , which do not see him, despite his use of signaling flares. He drifts out of the shipping lane with no food and water. On the eighth day, he writes a letter, puts it in a jar, and throws it in the water as a message in a bottle . Later that night, he sees a light in the distance. He tears pages from his journal along with charts to create a signal fire. The fire grows out of control and consumes his raft. He falls into the water and allows himself to sink. Underwater, he sees the hull of a boat with a search light approaching his burning raft. He swims up towards the surface to grasp an outstretched hand.
