Following the efforts of musician Joby Fox, his friend Jude Bennett and Rathlin ferry skipper Michael Cecil to fund and operate a rescue boat in the Mediterranean.
In 2015, Belfast musician Joby Fox is so horrified at refugees and migrants drowning in the Mediterranean that he goes straight to Greece to help. Amongst the volunteers standing on the Lesvos beach waiting for the boats to arrive, he realises the real need is out at sea. He comes home with a mission - to fund and operate a rescue boat. He calls on the support of an old friend, Jude Bennett, and Rathlin ferry skipper Michael Cecil. In the face of an international crisis can they really make a difference? The Crossing follows their dream.
