When political decisions stop protecting human life, the young ship’s captain takes on the responsibility for the safety and health of both her crew and the rescued refugees. There were also some filmmakers onboard, daily capturing the story that would later appear on the title pages of the world’s media. They become eyewitnesses to the dangerous rescue operation, listen to the horrifying memories of slave labour and sexual violence the refugees suffered in Libya, and track the firm determination of young captain Carola to defend human dignity even at the cost of breaking the law. Over several weeks of waiting, the atmosphere on deck thickens as the situation escalates towards a dramatic finale.
