Synopsis >

'Once they boarded the vessel with their guns we had no chance to do anything.' Colin Wright was a seaman aboard the Maersk Alabama when it was captured by Somali pirates in 2009; upon his homecoming, he told the story of what happened, why he thought he would be singled out and killed, and whether he would return to the high seas. At that time he had no idea it would become the Tom Hanks movie 'Captain Phillips.'
