Styx FINAL Play Button

Rieke embarks on her one-woman solo voyage across the Atlantic, but she has no idea what will await her on the high seas. When she becomes the only person to come to the aid of a shipwrecked group of refugees, Rieke is quickly torn out of her contented and idealized world and must recognize the cruelties of real life that appear in front of her. Rieke slips from one nightmare to the next as she is forced to grapple with the consequences of reality and shown the limits of her own empathy.
