Synopsis

Rike (Susanne Wolff) is an educated, confident and determined paramedic from Cologne. Seeking restorative calm from her hectic day-to-day life, she takes a solo yacht trip headed for Ascension Island, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. When her days of sunbaking, swimming and reading are thrown off by a powerful storm, Rike comes face-to-face with a far greater challenge- a fishing trawler filled with distraught refugees situated several hundred feet away from her.

Powered by Wolff’s outstanding performance, this gripping cinematic experience and astoundingly unsentimental morality play has screened to acclaim at film festivals worldwide, including Berlin, where it took out the prestigious Prize of the Ecumenical Jury. Told with the intensity of a ticking-clock thriller, Austrian-born director Wolfgang Fischer offers a stark, exhilarating parable that bravely depicts the Western world’s indifference towards the refugee crisis.
