Out at Sea is a comedy by Polish dramatist, writer and cartoonist Slawomir Mrozek, (1930–2013) [1]. Three men find themselves on a raft in the middle of the ocean. Having something to eat is not a question of what... but whom. Someone has to be sacrificed and the three are struggling to find a 'just' and 'humane' way to decide for the right person.
