    • Synopsis
    • Imagine you are the captain of a container ship: You get hijacked by Somali pirates. After three weeks, suddenly, the pirates gather the hostages and say: 'There is no ransom offer from your shipping company. We will execute you'. The pirates drag you onto the deck; push you on your knees. One of them aims his gun at your head and shoots. The bullet hits the wall behind you. Drenched in cold sweat you fall unconscious and keep lying on the ship's deck. Only a few weeks after his liberation this very captain tells the filmmaker: 'The pirates' boss was human. There were times on board when he was the only one to back me up.
