In the 1740s, a British ship sinks on its way to Brazil with 30 men aboard. They find themselves on the coast of Brazil after their vessel capsizes and are forced to battle for survival in an unknown land. Six months later, another ship arrives on Chile's shore, and the crew accuses those aboard of mutiny. With a test that aims to discover what occurred on the island, the British Admiralty attempts to straighten the narrative and recover the facts. They hear how they fought against adversity. "To survive one of the most extreme climates on the planet, but also battling their own human natures."

The Wager will be followed by Killers of the Flower Moon, which is scheduled to premiere in 2023.
