Ane runs a restaurant on the Croatian island of Mljet; Pavel works as a sailing instructor in the port of La Spezia, Italy; Yiannis is a fisherman in Greece. All three love the sea and cannot imagine living anywhere else other than on the coast of the Mediterranean. They have opted for a decent and self-determined life, even if it requires compromise and a certain sacrifice. As long as it is summer they have work. However in winter they have to hold out. The writing of Croatian sailor and author Joža Horvat provided the inspiration for this documentary.
