Description:
  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. Over the phone, he is pressured by his boss to finish the transport at any cost.

The true story happened in August 2015 in Hungary and Austria.
Based on the published cell phone protocols of the smugglers, whose phones were being monitored by the Hungarian Government, it gives a shocking insight into an organized smugglers Network in Europe.

"With Cargo I want to give a voice to those who have none and create an echo in people’s heads: Nobody should be illegal." Christina Tournatzés [director]
