But beneath the surface of this yearlong adventure are the pains and problems of everyday life. Over the course of a year Jack quits his job, adopts a child, and yet still continues his trek across the globe. Each success of his charity is met with a new problem at home, and his marriage begins to suffer. With bills piling up and his family struggling to find time together, something has to give.
And for Aileen, the stress of managing the family, paying for the charity, and working a full time job is starting to be too much. But how do you tell a man working with Indian orphans, children with autism, and many more in need, to stop?
Bound By Sea presents both the highs and lows of a family fighting to live one man’s dream while also staying together.
