Synopsis

“This is All Is Lost with a spinning moral compass and a topical dimension that proves even more gripping than its brilliantly achieved visceral action.” –Variety

In this work of unrelenting intensity, ER doctor Rike embarks on a solo sail to Ascension Island in the Atlantic Ocean. When she comes across a sinking ship of refugees, she must make a momentous decision. Susanne Wolff turns in a riveting performance as a woman pushed to the physical, psychological, and moral limits in this masterful piece of filmmaking that is as poetic as it is austere.
