East India

A gripping 17th century adventure thriller about shipwreck, survival and the dark side of man, loosely based on one of the most famous sea stories in history.

The Great Southland, 1626: Michiel van Texel is a captain on the company’s coin on his way to Batavia, on the other side of the world, to fight the Mataram and escape his demons. The ship is overcrowded, and navigation around the Horn is down to the skipper’s dead reckoning – guesswork. But Michiel soon realizes the skipper has his own plans that could put the whole voyage in danger.

When the ship founders on the jagged reefs of the Houtman Rocks, all hell breaks loose. As those around him reveal their true natures, chaos and barbarism ensue. Surviving the wreck soon becomes the least of his problems.

Evil happens when good men do nothing. And Michiel has always seen himself as a good man. But he has never faced evil like this.
