The freighter MV Rozen has almost reached its port of call when it is boarded and hijacked by pirates in the Indian Ocean. The crew, among them the ship’s cook Mikkel and its engineer Jan, are all taken hostage and a cynical game of life and death begins. When the pirates demand a ransom of millions of dollars, a psychological drama unfolds between the CEO of the shipping company and the Somali pirates.
"With the hijackings of the Danish-owned freighters DANICA WHITE and CEC FUTURE in 2007 and 2008, I became aware of a reality that I did not know existed. A reality where shipping companies are forced to negotiate directly with pirates. A reality where pirates earn millions of dollars and a reality where seamen are held hostage for months without any influence on their own fate."
