Life Raft archive"We're not savages. We won't let the strong take from the weak. Tomorrow morning, we will meet again, and we will all make our case." In a mysterious dystopia, against a backdrop of war, a lifeboat filled with children is adrift at sea - their passenger liner sunk by an unknown and unseen enemy. As darkness falls and their rations dwindle, fear, superstition and madness start to take hold. As hours turn into days, it becomes clear that not all of them will make it out of there alive. Inspired by a terrifying true story, this updating of a Second World War morality tale rediscovers a parable for our troubled times. World Premiere
