A surprising and intimate portrait of the family of Jure Šterk, the first Slovene who single-handedly circumnavigated the world, as viewed from the personal perspective of his son. A humorous and uncompromising family drama with three main actors—father, mother and son—who represent three forces within their household, while the sailing boat represents the fourth. The father as the head of the family is omnipresent at home, even in his absence. By being repeatedly absent and by risking his own life, he leaves a permanent and indelible mark on the household. There is a woman behind every successful man. Does anyone ever ask about the price she has to pay for that success? Is the fulfilment of a man's dreams more important than the fulfilment of a woman’s? Multi-layered, difficult, complex, never completely clarified or understood relations. Who is the good person in this story? And who is the bad one? A lot is forgiven and forgotten, but this can sometimes be controversial, too.
