Synopsis

Six people meet at a harbour in an unnamed European city and are hearded into an empty steel container by a smuggler with harbour security guards in hot pursuit. Dora and her young daughter Svetlana lose all the food they brought for the trip and many of the refugees seek to have them banned for their lack of provisions. A tyrannical Russian sets himself off from the group with old container boxes while the stress level rises on the boat due to constant mechanical difficulties. The Russian eventually gives Dora a small morsal of food in exchange for sex prompting the other refugees to eventually attack him. They manage to burst through a metal door and a thin teenager is recruited to slip into the kitchen to acquire food. Unfortunately, he leaves a footprint, tipping off the ship's authorities who round up the stowaways and show little mercy.
