Rike, a successful doctor, uses her holiday to fulfill her long-cherished dream of sailing single-handedly from Gibraltar to Ascension Island in the Atlantic Ocean. Her dream holiday is quickly broken after a storm, when she spots a badly damaged, hopelessly overloaded refugee boat. More than a hundred people are about to drown. Seeking help in vain, Rike faces the limits of the empathy of her cultural milieu, and is forced to recognize that there is no way to counter the cruelties of real life.
