Cargo

Synopsis

Director

In the cold waters of the North Sea, Leon Broucke falls overboard from his fishing boat in front of his eldest son, Jean. The old man slips into a deep coma, leaving Jean with a huge debt and responsibility for the family business. The absence of his father sets off an aftershock of conflicts between him and his two brothers: Francis is torn between his family and leaving with his secret lover; while William returns home to escape his life of crime and redeem himself. Desperate to build a future for his eight-year-old son, Jean turns to his brother’s criminal past.
