A poetic documentary that unveils the soul of the Baltic culture around the Sea. The film portrays in multiple layers the world of the fishing industry, and through a modern view it connects the society with its cultural heritage, the nature, the human factor, the sound, and the silence.
The capability to modulate, with different sequences and fields, a story with a powerful vision, rich of anthropological evocations, in which sweat and hard work are included in wider and playful social ties.
