A story of three youths taking a summer cruise around the Greek Islands. Unmarried siblings Matyáš (Matyáš Řezníček) and Natalia (Jenofa Boková) sail as crew on a sailboat on which the son of the owner of the ship is on board, and documentary filmmaker Honza (Vladimir Polivka), joins the ship. The gradual rapprochement of Natalie and Honza is detrimental to the perfect coexistence of siblings, and on the surface they begin to surrender to things that will show their carefree ride in quite another light. An unusual love triangle takes place in an attractive yacht environment which brings our characters closer to the desires and concerns of today's younger generation. The debut director, Sofie Sustak, made a generic testimony with the young crew on the limited space of a sailing ship in the open sea and the picturesque islands of Northern Sporades.
