A Turkish freighter is being held in an Egyptian port. It has to anchor off the coast until the owner pays his debts. A skeleton crew stays on board: the authoritarian Cypriot captain, his hypocritical deputy, an affable cook, two drug-addicted petty criminals and the almost mute, cumbersome engineer Kurd. Conflict soon blows up between the crew members which get worse as the days pass and nothing happens and provisions grow scarce. When one day Kurd disappears, the atmosphere tips over into a horror-like scenario. Ivy
is a brilliantly directed, claustrophobic drama that grows increasingly surreal.
