In the near future: Europe is in chaos. Right-wing extremists have taken power in many countries. The democratic state that once was Germany has become a totalitarian system that persecutes dissenters, Muslims and homosexuals. Jan Schneider has stood as a lawyer on the side of dispossessed victims. When he learns that the regime wants to jail him again, he decides to flee with his family. His goal is the South African Union, which enjoys political and economic stability after an economic boom. A freighter is to bring him, his wife Sarah and the two children Nora and Nick together with other refugees to Cape Town, but the tugs abandon their passengers in much too small boats off the coast of Namibia. On rough seas, it comes to disaster, the little Nick is lost, and no one knows if he could reach the shore... Written by michaelhuber77

Soo much wasted potential
15 February 2018 | by sebasebaSee all my reviews

The TV trailer and the description were so promising, but what did I expected from a German TV movie.. The idea was so promising with so much thought-provoking potential. But the whole story was wasted in a soap opera in a refugee camp. Could've been a dystopian brain scratcher, but it's like every other we get in German TV production. Two stars for the nice idea of an upside down refugee crisis, but zero for the execution...
