Ghosts of Midnight is the journey of young merchant shipping sailors who are caught in a murder. Carrying precious oil cargo across the world, it is a life full of hardship, monotony of the sea and constant threat of the weather. Sometimes they get to see the glamour of the berthing sea city. If there is the fear of death lurking around you, it becomes a traumatic experience if you are arrested for murder not committed by you. The mystery of the death leaves an aftermath of destruction on the minds of the young sailors. The families suffer along with the youngsters.
Those mammoth machines which are in their control do not care for the ordeal and leads them to a foreign land and their anarchical laws.
