The story of two young stevedores in Rostock, Cornelis Schmidt and Andreas Hornung who, in the early eighties, dreamed of going to sea. Until one day Cornelis' love for a young Vietnamese girl, Phuong Mai, and the betrayal of a co-worker have disastrous consequences for both of them. A story about personal destinies in a repressive country, about hopes, longings, disappointments and about what people are willing to sacrifice for their dreams.
