This documentary presents a rare opportunity to experience a journey on  board a 1000-foot freighter across North America's Great Lakes. We learn  the history of shipping over these huge bodies of water,  sail through  the Soo Locks, tour the Maritime Academy and view other important  landmarks; then we dive to view the wreck of the doomed Edmund Fitzgerald and hear Coast Guard recordings as the story of her sinking unfolds.
