An ER doctor embarks on a solo sailing trip to Ascension Island and
comes across a sinking boat of refugees. “In the first, nearly wordless
third of Wolfgang Fischer’s thrillingly lean Styx, in
filmmaking as crisp and slicing as a sea breeze, Suzanne Wolff’s expert
amateur sailor Rike embarks on a solo voyage across 5,000 km of open
Atlantic, in a tiny, bright white sailboat called Asa Gray. And simply
watching this one-woman-show of intense physical prowess is so absorbing
that it’s a double shock when she happens upon an overloaded refugee
boat and the film’s sails are suddenly fat with intractable dilemma.” (Variety)

“A blunt, breathless, and astoundingly unsentimental morality play
that’s told with the intensity of a ticking-clock thriller …this tight
sailor’s knot of a movie offers a cold look at the broken math of the
ongoing refugee crisis.” (IndieWire)

“Wolff is never less than mesmerizing in this role, which demands a
performance that is, at times, more physical than emotive. She’s like a
dancer: straining and exerting in a ballet of movements that convey
meaning not by words, but actions.” (Washington Post)
