Rike, a doctor from Europe, embodies a typical Western model of happiness and success. She is educated, confident, determined and committed. Leaving behind her everyday life as an emergency doctor, she fulfils 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 finds herself near a stricken fishing boat. Around a hundred people are about to drown. Rike follows maritime law and radios for help, but in the absence of answers, she is forced to make a momentous decision. This film is anchored by a riveting performance from German actress Susanne Wolff and she will be in Kilkenny to present the film.
