«Liquid life, like liquid society, is unable to retain its shape or keep itself on route for long.»
Five artists, two theatrical actors husband and wife, a choreographer, a musician and a videomaker have an ambitious project, they want to organize a traveling art festival following a merchant ship route.
When everything seems ready for the start of the journey – inspection, something goes wrong, the freighter’s route was canceled at the last minute.
While the five argue with each other about how to avoid the sinking of the project in a pub, a strange and self-styled captain offers them a lifeline.
Between doubts and uncertainties the five will accept the offer of the captain and on a sailing boat they will venture into a strange journey in which there will be no shortage of twists.
At the end of the journey, each of the five will face life from a new point of view.
