GERMANY , Austria | 94 minutes | 2018

The sea and its endless horizons. For some, it represents freedom from the stress of urban life. For others, it’s the involuntary passage to a new beginning in a host country free of war and conflict. For a German physician on a solo sail, it’s a sea of glass and a relentless sun until, in the wake of a nasty storm, she encounters a boat full of refugees — and sees her former life irretrievably change. In its poignant depiction of the refugee crisis, this taut, gripping drama skilfully points up intractable dilemmas that come into play when have meets have-not.
