The skipper of the Scottish trawler (Gary Lewis) has worked for more than thirty-two years to buy his fishing vessel, but is bankrupt and about to lose his ship to the bank. While in the port of Ostend, Belgium, the skipper's son Sean accepts a large sum of money to smuggle Chinese illegal immigrants to Scotland in an attempt to help his father keep the trawler. With the help of a deckhand (Peter Mullan) looking for easy money, they hide the group in the belly of the boat. When one of the Chinese dies, disrepair is triggered leading the crew to tragic actions.

Steve Hudson was born in London in 1969, and grew up in England and South America. He began writing, acting and directing while studying at Cambridge University. After drama school in London, Steve worked as both an actor and director in Britain, Cuba, Belgium, Germany and Italy, where he spent a year under Polish director Jerzy Grotowski, the founder of the ground-breaking “Laboratory Theatre”. Since 1996, he has lived in Germany, where he got his first experience writing, acting and directing for television and film. Steve’s short film "Goodbye" premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2004, where it won the UIP Prize for Best European Short Film.
