Outdoors, Adventure, Reality
"The Raft" is a reality series/social experiment that dares its participants to survive while stranded at sea. Each episode brings together four people, seemingly endless water, and plenty of fear, loneliness and isolation. Floating hundreds of miles apart in the Bermuda Triangle in separate, two-person life rafts, the challengers' goal is to endure one week adrift until they reach land. The vessels are equipped with only a small bag of basic survival tools. Scorching sun, high seas, stormy weather, hunger and thirst add to the degree of difficulty, but overcoming obstacles isn't dependent on individual persistence and determination alone. Each person controls their partner's fate. If one wants to quit, the adventure is over for both of them.
