Join five immigrants from Africa and the Middle East as they desperately try to smuggle themselves into England in a shipping container on a truck located somewhere in Europe. Four of the five have a simple goal and dream: to get to safety and begin a new life. The fifth is trying to reunite with his wife and child. What will each do to get what they want? Can they depend on each other to make it through safely during this harrowing journey? Is the agent who arranged the transportation reliable? THE CONTAINER tells a searing story of what drives these five characters from their homelands and their fears of an unknown future.
