Amal Basry watched The Titanic at a cinema in Baghdad the night before she fled Iraq. 18 months later, in October 2001, four hundred asylum seekers were pitched into the ocean when their people-smuggling boat from Indonesia sank on its way to Australia. Amal Basry was one of the seven survivors. In public, Amal became an advocate for the survivors. In private, she fought to reunite her fragmented family, cope with illness and the personal consequences of the disaster.
