In 1972, surfers Mike Cooke, Mace Stanley and their high school buddy are sailing down the west coast of Mexico looking for adventure. Seduced by an offer of $10,000 each, they get involved in a doomed venture to transport more than a ton of weed back to the states by yacht with two smugglers. After a shipwreck leaves them washed up on a deserted beach with their precious cargo floating in every direction, they wind up in a Mexican prison. Ever optimistic it’s not long before they hatch a plan to dig their way to freedom – even though the whole place is made of concrete. After torturous months of digging, and several disasters, they finally make it out. Will they make it back to the States, or has it all been for nothing?
