ER doctor Rike embarks on a one-woman solo sailing trip to Ascension Island in the Atlantic Ocean. When Rike comes across a sinking ship of refugees, she is quickly torn out of her contented and idealized world and must make a momentous decision. Aptly named after the mythological river that separates the living from the dead, STYX is an astute modern day parable of Western indifference in the face of marginalized suffering. Carrying practically the entire film Wolff is never less than remarkable in a riveting role as a woman pushed to her physical, psychological, and moral limits. Winner of three prizes at the Berlin International Film Festival. Official Selection at the Toronto International Film Festival. "It's a vital, highly intelligent movie that is both a first-class thriller and a biting commentary on our current world." - Olly Richards, Time Out
