Cargo

On August 26th, 2015 a convoy of human smugglers lets 71 refugees packed in a truck suffocate to death. At dawn smugglers load 71 people from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran onto a truck to drive them from Hungary to Germany. During the journey, the refugees start knocking and screaming for help. The truck driver faces a dilemma. He hears the people scream and beg for help but receives an order to not open the doors to the cargo area.
