Synopsis

Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean is inhabited by land crabs which every year migrate in their millions from the jungle to the sea. The same jungle hides a high-security Australian detention centre where thousands of asylum seekers have been locked away indefinitely. Their only connection to the outside world is trauma counsellor Poh Lin Lee – protagonist of this beautiful and sad film which masterfully intertwines fiction with reality.
