Emergency doctor Rieke (Susanne Wolff) embodies a Western ideal of happiness and success. On holiday she attempts to fulfil a long-held dream by sailing alone from Gibraltar to Ascencion Island in the Atlantic. But her trip changes course drastically when she encounters a damaged boat overloaded with desperate refugees. Stricken by their plight, she tries her best to help them, but as time goes by and the situation worsens, she is forced to make a life or death decision. A taught moral thriller, Styx is one of this years’ most provocative and gripping dramas.
