For months, the crew of the Mission Lifeline sea rescue ship is stuck in the port of Malta. The ship's captain is on trial for rescuing hundreds of refugees. This feature debut portrays the crew during their wait for a redemptive and anchor-releasing verdict. Ten months during which life, and death, continues in the Mediterranean. Sober shots of everyday life on the ship alternate with distress calls from the ship's radio, about boats in distress or of the isolated rescue of survivors. "This documentary offers insight into the absurdity of European migration policy and accompanies people who wanted to change things." (Production Note)
