Description

A capable, independent doctor, alone on her 40-foot sailboat, sets out from Gibraltar for an island paradise halfway down the coast of West Africa. She navigates and rigs, swims in the open ocean, and ably weathers a bad storm, calmly enjoying the open water and her days and nights of solitude at sea. When she suddenly encounters a group of refugees shipwrecked on the high seas, her poetic journey is interrupted and her empathy is tested. She must decide between orders not to intervene and her most basic humanitarian impulses, as she slips impotently from one nightmare to the next. This haunting, suspenseful, gorgeous film challenges our own morality as it inherently questions the very viewer: What would you do? Cast: Susanne Wolff, Gedion Oduor Wekesa (Germany/Austria, 2018, 94 min., Drama)
