Clandestins plot

A group of illegal immigrants from Eastern Europe and North Africa clandestinely tries to leave France. With the help of a 'tour guide', basically a people smuggler to whom they have to pay a lot of money for the crossing, they get into a container that is put on a ship sailing from Le Havre to Canada. Two men, two women and two children, locked in 25 square meters. They don't know each other. Not yet. The days pass, the meager provisions run out and tempers heat up. The crew is on the watch outside: because of the high fines that the captain has to pay on arrival, he will not tolerate any clandestine on board. Suddenly, in the middle of the ocean, the boat has engine trouble. Tension rises in the container until violence erupts. Without water and food, the clandestines have only one option: try to get out of the container at all costs.
