A woman's solo sailing journey turns into a deadly serious ethical dilemma in this taut political allegory.

40-year-old doctor Rike decides to use her much-needed annual holiday to fulfil her long-cherished dream of sailing single-handedly from Gibraltar to Ascension, a small tropical island in the middle of the Atlantic. Her beautiful adventure suddenly turns into an unprecedented challenge when she spots a badly damaged, hopelessly overloaded refugee boat nearby.

In English and German with English subtitles.

Running time: 1h55, including ads and trailers.
