Tension builds as Islamic militias and the pirates fight over a ship held to ransom while the shipowner and insurer stall over freeing the ship.
Abdi faces conflicts between his Western upbringing, his arranged bride in Somalia and his desire for a Norwegian woman who is an officer on the captured ship.
She is desperate to escape. She uses Abdi to help her get away, leading to unexpected consequences.
Their plight highlights Abdi’s conflicts between family and upbringing and the hypocrisies and hidden agendas which drive modern piracy.
