One Way Ticket

Faced with a precarious economic situation and poor standards of living, a group of friends initiate a plan to leave the Dominican Republic, illegally, by boat. One Way Ticket is based on actual events that occurred in September 1980, when several Dominicans were suffocated inside a container ship, the Regina Express.
