SYNOPSIS: A journey which, as many people know, was started by Magellan, but that not so many know was concluded by Juan Sebastian Elcano, the real protagonist of this story. What motivated these sailors to undertake such a potentially perilous voyage? Their desire to reach the Maluku Islands, an Indonesian archipelago and faraway paradise filled with spices and aromatic plants. But how would they get there if the only known route was the sole privilege of the Kingdom of Portugal? Well, the answer is simple; by sailing in the other direction! What was laying in wait for these courageous men however, was much more challenging: storms, hunger, hostile tribes and all kinds of incredible trials and tribulations would hinder the progress of our intrepid voyagers.
