Rike (Susanne Wolff) is an emergency doctor and passionate sailor. Alone with her small sailboat, she sets off from Gibraltar to Ascension Island. After a violent storm at night, she spots a wrecked cutter - overloaded with refugees. Despite alerting the coast guard, no help arrives. In a race against time and the forces of nature, Rike comes up against the limits of morality and humanity. Pure, intense cinema - in its purest form. Director Wolfgang Fischer succeeds in making an extraordinary film, stylistically always close to a disturbing illusion of the documentary.
