An overworked emergency doctor takes time out from her demanding job to fulfil a long-held dream to sail single-handedly across 5,000 kms of open Atlantic ocean.

A competent helmswoman, she sets off, revelling in the freedom of the high seas. Unexpectedly coming across a desperate situation, she must suddenly make perilous choices which are perhaps the most challenging yet faced, in moral territory she has never before encountered.

With visceral action, sparse dialogue and the natural elements generating a soundtrack, this is a thoroughly absorbing voyage drama which confronts the plight of those peoples facing dire straits as individuals, instead of media statistics.

“It’s a vital, highly intelligent movie, that is both a first-class thriller and a biting commentary on our current world” Olly Richards, Time Out
