Much societal hand-wringing resulted from the news out of the Netherlands that 14-year-old Laura Dekker had designs on being the youngest person to sail solo around the world, and the subsequent yearlong legal battle that preceded her journey only amplified the opposition. But "Maidentrip" shows Dekker to be an inspiration whose independent spirit clung to an audacious dream and refused to let go. Filled with stunning footage captured by Dekker while out at sea with only her beloved boat "Guppy" to keep her company, "Maidentrip" is a coming-of-age tale that will prove irresistible to those with adventurous hearts.
