The film displays the slow effects of trauma, inflicted by the pirates through inhumane mind games played on cook and protagonist Mikkel (Pilou Asbæk) as well as several other crew members. As the film moves along your mind seems to deteriorate along with these suffering men, longing for the simplest luxuries, like a bathroom, as well as their homes and families, only a few miles away.
It is truly and fully a simple yet perfect display of the plausible; incredibly well written and filmed. Though it is a bit slow on tempo it will have you on the edge of your seat as the crew members are treated as live stock, going to the highest bid.
