An old woman, a young girl and a clapped-out barge on an unusual journey from Berlin to Poland. For 11-year-old Kattaka it′s an escape: she′s looking for her natural father, a Russian sailor whose ship is currently moored in Gdansk and whose existence her parents have kept secret until now. For 70-year-old Lena it′s a journey back: back to her home in Masuren, from which she fled in the Second World War. And back to her suppressed pain of having lost both parents. Only together can the mismatched couple regain the ground beneath their feet, and themselves.
