Departing Hamburg in high spirits, 937 Jewish Germans have been offered safe haven in Havana, Cuba, in 1939. The passengers are looking forward to their new life. However, the whole voyage is actually a Nazi propaganda scheme and the passengers are never really intended to be allowed ashore once they reach their destination.

Excellent movie! Star-studded cast. Based on a true story. A sad comment on history that no one was willing to take the Jewish people that were trying to escape from Germany.
