Inspired by the real-life plight of workers sold into Southeast Asia’s fishing industry and featuring a powerful performance from its first-time star, this gripping high seas drama was awarded the Panorama Prize by Berlinale’s Ecumenical Jury.

A couple of young males leave their poor family farms in search of a better life. Their sanity and dreams vanish when they realise they have become slaves aboard a deep sea fishing vessel with no way of escape.

“A terse minimalist thriller … Heng’s largely wordless central performance is captivating.” – Sight & Sound
