synopsis

Chris is a young backpacker who has been travelling around Africa. He's hard up and a bit cocky, and is caught stealing a bangle from a busy market in an African city. He's arrested by the police and quickly has his remaining money and passport taken off him, and no way to get back home.
At a bar in the harbour he meets a strange, seemingly mismatched group of men, who argue about an illegal cargo they plan to take to Europe. The men almost get into a fight but Chris sees how the presence of a man named Brookes holds them back. He's the captain of a ship, The Gull, which is heading for Europe the following morning. Despite the danger, Chris realises this might be his only chance to get home and decides to stowaway on board.
But the Gull is no ordinary boat. Chris doesn't realise that by his presence alone he's a threat to this world hermetically sealed off from the outside, with its own unforgiving moral code and weight of dark secrets, which the men and Brookes in particular will do anything to protect.
