The Movie PDFDownload fact sheet

This is the story of a man who is fed up with living in the city among thoughtless neighbours and noisy passersby. One day he pulls the plug on his life in the city and sets out to sea in search of peace and quiet. Presently he comes to a beautiful uninhabited desert island. In a series of unpredictable events he ends up having to pack his bags again and again as he discovers that no matter where he goes his paradise is always lost.

In the end he decides that only the open sea can guarantee an undisturbed existence. That is until he finds himself washed up on a faraway shore...
