When his income as a fisherman proves woefully insufficient to cover his son's school fees, Kevin (Warren Brown) turns to human smuggling in order to raise desperately needed funds. Kevin finds that he's good at this dangerous yet profitable vocation—good enough to trust himself with smuggling his own girlfriend and her son to the US. But when faced with having to abandon refugees at sea far from Miami shores, Kevin is suddenly forced to reassess his responsibilities.

Inspired by true events, Cargo examines the world's refugee crisis from a very local perspective. The largest Bahamian film project to date, this latest feature from Kareem J. Mortimer (2010's Children of God) is a thrilling, vital call for empathy in troubled times.

Cargo also stars Gessica Geneus, Persia White (The Vampire Diaries), Omar J. Dorsey (Halloween), and Jamie Donnelly (Black Mass). Catch it in theaters May 30 and enjoy the trailer below.
