A woman's search for her missing husband is compounded by her refusal to accept the possibility of his death in director Marie de Laubier's mysterious drama. Returning home after sailing solo for five months in an around the world boat race, Phillipe's (Patrick Pineau) loving wife Lucie (Julie Depardieu) consoles him for coming in last place as he explains to son Vincent (Thibault Patell) that he wasn't in it for the recognition, but rather to become "part of the sea." Regardless of his seemingly uncaring response to having finished the race nearly two months after the winner sailed across the finish line, Phillipe seems a haunted man on his return home, and soon sets sail once again to visit an old friend in Madagascar. When his wife recieves a call from the coast guard informing her that Phillipe's boat has been found and his whereabouts are unknown, Lucie refuses to believe their assumption that he has likely drowned.
