Summary, etc.:
Simshar is inspired by true stories which occurred in the Mediterranean in the summer of 2008. This poignant film tells the story of 11 year old Theo who sets sail with his sea faring family on their fishing boat when an accident throws them into open water. Simultaneously in the Mediterranean, a Turkish merchant vessel has rescued a group of stranded migrants between Italy and Malta, but neither country will take them in. The stories collide and culminate in incredible ways.
