Emergency room doctor Rike (Susanne Wolff) embarks on a one-woman solo sailing trip to Ascension Island in the Atlantic Ocean. When she comes across a sinking ship of refugees, she is quickly torn out of her contented and idealized world and must make a momentous decision. Wolff is never less than remarkable in her role as a woman pushed to her physical, psychological and moral limits. This suspenseful film, named after the mythological river that separates the living from the dead, will keep you riveted until the very end. Starring Susanne Wolff and Alexander Beyer Subtitled.
Extraordinarily gripping... brisk, efficient and thrillingly dynamic. Variety
