Synopsis

A heavily-indebted Scottish trawler calls into port - the ship’s mate intent on filling the coffers by smuggling cigarettes. Only there are no cigarettes; this time there is only twenty Chinese would-be immigrants …

Fearing the loss of their livelihood, the men are driven to do desperate things. But the cost of human trafficking upsets the scales and there is always a price to pay. In TRUE NORTH two worlds collide with tragic consequences.
