SYNOPSIS: Rike, a German doctor enjoying a solo sailing holiday off the Spanish coast. When she encounters a slowly sinking boat packed with African refugees, she immediately calls the Coast Guard, who assure her they’ll handle it and forbid her from interfering.

There are no easy answers in Styx, which will haunt you long after its aching conclusion.
