What does modern-day slavery look like, and are we, as consumers, complicit in perpetuating it? Combining interviews with dramatically shot re-enactments, Ghost Fleet follows a Bangkok-based activist who fights death threats and corruption to rescue fishermen trafficked into slavery on Thai fishing boats – and help them obtain justice.
