Take three strangers who all want something more. The Polish shift worker struggling to get a foothold in the new country; a fisherman who needs to make good on a promise to his best friend; and the middle man, determined to make up for lost time and take a little of what he deserves.
When a chance comes along, each man must weigh the risk - and then keep his nerve as events take on their own unstoppable momentum.
Tightly plotted and sharply observed, this is a gripping story of desperation and duty, and the brutal struggle to progress.
