In the true story of KON-TIKI, a dangerous seafaring adventure, six men sail from Peru to Polynesia risking their lives for an idea that could change history. Thor Heyerdahl (Hagen) - a restless spirit, along with five loyal buddies, follow an ancient path 4,300 miles across the Pacific on the fragile raft. Attacked by tidal waves, sharks and all the dangers the Ocean can muster, it's six men battling with nature as Kon-Tiki strives to reach land. Having sacrificed everything for his mission, even his marriage, Thor must succeed.

The cast includes Pål Sverre Hagen as Thor, who attracted much critical acclaim during the North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, Odd-Magnus Williamson, Tobias Santelmann, Anders Baasmo Christiansen, Jakob Oftebro and Gustaf Skarsgård. Heyerdahl's book Kon-Tiki has sold over 70 million copies worldwide in 67 languages, and his documentary on the voyage won an Academy Award for Best Documentary in 1951.

KON-TIKI was produced by Thomas' Recorded Picture Company with Aage Aaberge on behalf of Nordisk Film. Thomas' HanWay Films are handling worldwide sales. The development of the film was supported by the Stenersen family of Oslo, the publishers of many of Thor Heyerdahl's books, who were one of the key investors in the film. Executive-producers include Lone Korslund of Nordisk Film, and Dario Suter, Christoph Daniel and Marc Schmidheiney of DCM Productions, who also hold German rights.
