What if the honorable way you made your living was no longer an option? How far would you go to protect and provide for your family? Desperate to save his beloved wife, young son, and himself, a young Somalian fisherman is forced to make a moral compromise. Will he help thieves and killers—including his best friend? Cast mainly with nonprofessional actors—Somalian refugees—this winner of the Sundance Directing
Award explores both sides of the story of Indian Ocean piracy, going where no other film addressing this subject has gone—into the hearts of the pirates themselves.
