On November 23, 1942, German U-boats torpedoed the British ship Benlomond, and it sank in the Atlantic in two minutes. The sole survivor was a second steward named Poon Lim who, with no knowledge of the sea, managed to stay alive for 133 days on a small wooden raft. Sole Survivor, based on interviews with Poon, reconstructs his remarkable ordeal. His story is an amazing tale of a young man's fortitude in the face of overwhelming odds.
