ldh's review

A harrowing film about a woman who embarks on a solo sailing trip from Gibraltar to the Canary Island and comes across a sinking refugee boat with people dying. Her boat is too small and she's unable to save them even as she desperately tries to call in the coast guards for a rescue. This is a painful film, that draws on the solitude of the main character, and the sea which takes a central role in the slowly unfolding drama. It's a slow-paced film that feels frustrating at times but which ultimately delivers a poignant tale.

- Laurent Hasson
