Annotation to the film
The film tells about a unique scientific and social experiment - the international expedition Kon-Tiki II. Inspired by Thor Heyerdahl, under the direction of his follower, the Norwegian Torgeir Higraff, people from different countries crossed the Pacific Ocean on balsa rafts from South America to Easter Island, and set off on a return trip that no one had done before.
Two Russian doctors, Boris Romanov and Sergey Goltsov, talk about their participation in this expedition, which was a tribute to the memory of Yuri Sienkiewicz - the famous Russian doctor, traveler and friend Thor Heyerdahl, the author of television programs and books, on which a whole generation of people grew up like traveling.
