One Simple Question (directed by Derek Alan Rowe and Chris Rodriguez) follows a young couple as they leave behind the comforts of land and begin a life of adventure at sea aboard a small sailboat. Their goal is to sail north until they find an iceberg. Cramped in tight quarters, together they endure sleepless nights, thick fog, rough weather and icy northern water. After a voyage of over 1600 miles, they come across their first piece of ice, which happens to be part of the Petermann ice-island, the biggest iceberg found in the last six decades, attracting both the attention and concern of climatologists internationally. The couple’s quest brings them lessons in the joy of a deliberate life, a greater understanding of nature and a new path in the pursuit of happiness. All that is needed is the courage to set sail against the winds, breaking life’s conventional waves!
