An untrained crew and a group of idealistic volunteers set off in a converted old trawler to rescue refugees crossing the Mediterranean Sea. They have a vague idea of what to expect, limited space and resources, and no means of defending themselves from the pirates heard to be lurking off the coast of Libya. When they come across a rubber boat crammed with a hundred refugees, they are struck by the daunting reality of the refugee crisis. Some people are collapsing, some in dire need of medical attention, but all are overwhelmingly grateful for being granted a reprieve from death.
