A desperate Somali father becomes a pirate in order to feed his family, but experiences an intense crisis of conscience in this thought-provoking drama. Abdi (Abdikani Muktar Manur) knows that his wife and child could starve should he fail to find work fast. After falling in with a band of local pirates, he helps to capture a French oil tanker, and the ransom negotiations begin. Meanwhile, as the money is being transported, Abdi strikes up a tenuous friendship with a frightened hostage. Abdi's resolve is soon tested, however, when some of his fellow pirates display a shocking tendency towards violence.
