ER doctor Rike (Susanne Wolff) embarks on a one-woman solo sailing trip to Ascension Island in the Atlantic Ocean. When Rike comes across a sinking ship of refugees, she is quickly torn out of her contented and idealized world and must make a momentous decision. Aptly named after the mythological river that separates the living from the dead, STYX is an astute modern day parable of Western indifference in the face of marginalized suffering. Carrying practically the entire film Wolff is never less than remarkable in a riveting role as a woman pushed to her physical, psychological, and moral limits.

While the acting is impressive and the cinematography is magnificent, this film is unrelentingly bleak. The blurbs on the jacket completely fail to describe the horror and grief that is the heart of the story--drowning African refugees ignored by all who could help them. I wish it was advertised honestly.

A very adventurous sea voyage with humanitarian strings attached.
