The Australians decide to help, towing the refugees, but when they wake the next morning the fishing boat is gone. Five years later, they meet some of the refugees again and learn the truth. Someone cut the rope between the two boats and, as a result, seven people died when the fishing boat sank. The revelation drives a wedge of mistrust between the Australians, as they grapple with protecting themselves and doing the right thing.
