Atlantic Drift

2000 Jewish refugees were packed aboard the Atlantic and drifted for three months across the Black Sea and the Mediterranean, hoping to reach Palestine. They were not only plagued by sickness, hunger and death but also by the British Navy which, instead of helping them, organized their deportation to Mauritius. One ex-refugee, Hannah, returns to the prison where she was detained for five years. Her son, who accompanies her, finds it hard to understand why his father is buried in one of the 124 Jewish graves overlooking the Indian Ocean.
