Morning Light is the documentary of 15 youths, aged 18-22, who are chosen and subsequently trained for the TRANSPAC ocean race. The 2,200-mile race starts in Los Angeles and ends in Hawaii, and pits man and his sailboat against the unforgiving Pacific Ocean. The kids were chosen for their abilities as sailors and trained by the best sailors in the world, so they could compete in this great adventure against well-funded and highly skilled professional sailors. Their dedication and teamwork are on full display as the sum of the parts becomes greater than whole as they race across the Pacific. The youths passion and indomitable spirit captures the hearts and minds of those who bear witness to their journey. The bond between them grows stronger each day as they push the limits of the boat and each other. Morning Light is an inspiration to those who believe in faith, teamwork and the power of the human spirit.

Metacritic Score

  • 60

    The New York Times Jeannette Catsoulis

    Like the disastrously overpopulated "Amazing Race: Family Edition," Morning Light never finds a way to make us care who wins.

    Variety

    The film feels more like the ultimate scrapbook for the participants than the vicarious thrill the pair no doubt imagined for audiences.

  • 30

    Los Angeles Times

    If the makers were hoping they'd chronicled a metaphor for life's struggle, they probably weren't counting on the struggle being monotony.
