Atlantic Drift


In 1940, 2000 Jews succeed in escaping Nazi Germany through the Danube River. But three months later, they were intercepted by the UK Royal Navy near Cyprus and then deported to Mauritius and imprisoned for five years. 50 years later, Schlomo Haendel goes to Mauritius to find out what happened to his father.
