Forty-year old Rike is an emergency doctor from Europe. She embodies a typical Western model of happiness and success. She is educated, confident, determined and committed. One day she decide to fulfil her long-held dream and sails out on her sailing boat. Her goal: Ascension Island in the Atlantic Ocean. Her dream holiday is quickly broken off on the high seas, when, after a storm, she finds herself near a stricken fishing boat. Around a hundred people are about to drown. Rike follows maritime law and radios for help. As her request is going nowhere, she is forced to make a fatal decision.
