Film in development with The Weinstein Company In the dead of night on July 24, 2013, John Aldridge was thrown of the back of the Anna Mary somewhere off the coast of Long Island, NY, while his fishing partner and lifelong friend, Anthony Sosinski, slept below. As desperate hours ticked by, Sosinski, their families, the local fishing community and the U.S. Coast Guard in three states launched an unprecedented search effort that culminated in a rare and exhilarating rescue. A tale of survival, perseverance, and community, A SPECK IN THE SEA tells one man's struggle to survive as friends and strangers work together to bring him home. Aldridge's incredible first-person account intertwines with the story of the massive, constantly evolving rescue mission to tell a moving and astounding tale of survival.
