"Boat People" portraiys the voyage of the ship "Cap Anamur" across the China Sea in search of Vietnamese refugees, the so-called "Boat People". In following the boat, the film also follows the course of events involving the helpful crew thirsting for action, who instead must wait for weeks while the open sea keeps the refugees out of sight, and disturbing encounters with pirate ships. Finally, like an act of deliverance, the firs bboat full of the hapless children, men andwomen, reaches the German ship. Almost dwlirious with happiness to be able to help at least, the German crew eagerly and trenderly helps the refugees on board and tends to their needs. More and more boats, more and more refugees, more and more tales of woe make up the "catch" from the sea before the ship turns to sail back to Hamburg. The film is a portrait of the happiness that arises from altruistic service. This docudrama is dedicated to the comittee "Cap Anamur/German Emergency Doctors": the doctors, nurses, technicians and mechanics, all volunteers who have remained on stand by for years, as well as their founder, the media journalist and television critic Rupert Neudeck.
