The film is written and directed by Gunnar Vikene (Falling Sky, Vegas, Trigger) and stars Kristoffer Joner, Pål Sverre Hagen and Ine Marie Wilmann. The movie follows two lifelong friends who are working on a merchant ship in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean when World War II breaks out and turns them into refugees at sea.
