“A lean and gripping realisation of the forced helplessness one feels in the face of humanitarian crisis.” — WF

Rike embodies a typically Western model of happiness and success. She is educated, confident, determined and committed. We see her everyday life as an emergency doctor before she fulfils a long-held dream to sail out to sea alone. Her goal: Ascension Island in the Atlantic Ocean.

After a storm, she finds herself near a stricken fishing boat. Around a hundred people are about to drown. Rike follows maritime law and radios for help. As her request is going nowhere, she is forced to make a fatal decision.
