September 2015. A photo makes news around the globe. It’s of a Syrian toddler facedown in the sand on the Turkish coastline. Lifeless. His name, Aylan.
Two days later, a lifeguard, OSCAR (50, attractive, rugged, toughened by life) and his friend and workmate GERARD (35, tall, strong, kind) are on a plane to the Greek island of Lesbos, where the boy’s family had been heading, to offer the services of their maritime rescue company to the NGOs who receive the Syrian refugees on the coast. But when they arrive, none are to be found.
