Live Cargo

Featuring an ethereal tone and stark black-and-white cinematography, Live Cargo is set on a small island in the Bahamas that is being torn in two. On one side is a dangerous human trafficker using stolen boats to move Haitians to the United States, and on the other is an ageing patriarch, struggling to maintain order. This is the situation grieving couple Nadine and Lewis move into when they journey to the island, hoping to restore their relationship after the tragic death of their newborn child. They soon discover that, no matter how hard they try, nothing on the island is untouched by the effects of human trafficking. [Synopsis courtesy of Tribeca Film Festival]
