Rike, a 40-year-old German doctor, looks to fulfill a long-held dream and sails out to sea alone in her sailing boat. Her goal: Ascension Island in the Atlantic Ocean.

But her dream holiday is quickly broken off on the high seas, when, after a storm, she comes upon a stricken fishing boat, overfilled with close to a hundred people.

Rike radios for help, but to no avail, and she is forced to make a momentous decision.


"This is ALL IS LOST with a spinning moral compass and a topical dimension that proves even more gripping than its brilliantly achieved visceral action." - Jessica Kiang, Variety
