The mystery series ‘1899’ was created by Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese (‘Dark’), and streamed on Netflix worldwide. A migrant steamship heads west to leave the old continent. The passengers are a mixed bag of European origin, united by their hopes and dreams for the new century and their future abroad. But their journey takes an unexpected turn when they discover another migrant ship adrift on open sea. What they will find on board will turn their passage to the promised land into a horrifying nightmare.
