Logline

This film is shown as part of HFF Special 2.

Ever larger container ships represent the expanding luxury of our globalized world: a luxury that comes at the expense of a small number of seafarers. Many of them come from the Philippines. Poorly paid and expected to work nonstop, they are at the mercy of an exploitative system.
