Rike is an emergency doctor and passionate sailor. She sets off alone on her small yacht for a long-awaited journey from Gibraltar to Ascension Island. After a fierce storm at night, she sees a damaged cutter close by—overloaded with refugees. Although she alarms the coast guard, no help arrives. In a race against time and the elements, Rike reaches the borders of morality and humanity. Pure, intense cinema.
