A Spanish filmmaker living in Denmark travels back home to Basque Country to follow three friends on a surreal nautical voyage. Riding a second-hand paddle boat, they pedal over 150km along the entire Basque coast from Hendaia (French Basque), to Bilbao (Spanish Basque), in an attempt to rediscover their country’s shoreline. From the cold suburbs of Copenhagen, the filmmaker imagined a romanticized summer story; but, as a second-hand paddle boat is not made for the rough Basque sea, things don’t go as planned. The journey becomes a delirium with unforeseen accidents, folkloric parties, hangovers, a shaman, a funeral... Documenting the expedition of these “sailors” on his own, the filmmaker finds himself on a parallel inner journey.
