Synopsis
The crew of the non-governmental sea rescue vessel "Lifeline" has been stuck in Malta for several weeks now. After the rescue of over 450 refugees from distress at sea, Captain Claus- Peter Reisch must stand trial and the ship remains confiscated for its duration. Hopes for a speedy trial are dwindling more and more.
What is it like to be forced to wait while people are drowning just a few miles away?
NO NEWS gives an insight into the absurdity of European migration policy and observes people who stood up for change but got to feel how little we want it.
