They depart Hamburg in high spirits looking forward to their new life away from the sinister clutches of the Third Reich. Some are concentration camp victims, others survivors of 'The Night of Broken Glass'. Some want to join relatives in Cuba, others are wealthy enough to afford the journey but leave everything behind in order to escape the Nazi genocide. The passengers are unaware that the voyage is a sham, simply one of Josef Goebbels' propaganda exercises. Experience the tragic nightmare of the passengers as the world turns its back on them in this thought-provoking drama based on a true story featuring an impressive cast of Hollywood legends.
