Columbus wakes up surrounded by rising waters and decides that instead of viewing this shock as a catastrophe he’ll take it as an opportunity to set a course for his dreams. Faced with numerous hurdles and challenges en route to his goals, Columbus discovers that learning to appreciate the beauty in the journey and the unexpected is just as important as reaching your destination.
