The Danish cargo freighter MV Rozen is on a course for Mumbai when a band of Somali pirates appear and commandeer the vessel, holding the crew and ship hostage for a ransom of $25 million. News of the ship’s capture reaches the shipping company’s CEO, who rashly decides that his business acumen makes him the best candidate to take the lead in the negotiations. As the ransom talks wear on for months on end, with the crew’s lives and millions of dollars hanging in the balance, who will be the first to break under pressure? Without resorting to traditional action set pieces, this gritty and authentic modern thriller is an intense and absorbing drama that will keep you riveted until the very end.
