Come on a long trip with genuine sea bears. The protagonists are as different as their boats. Nils Sander was born with the “shrimper-gene”. He has taken over the cutter “Uranus” from his dad. For the well experienced captain it is not unusual to have 18-hours-shifts on the sea. Meanwhile the crew of “MS Cape Race” circuits huge icebergs in a unique natural landscape and Fritz Flindt with his six buddy crew belongs to the last sea fishermen of Germany.  The others on the “J. von Cölln” are on the hunt for pollacks off the coast of Norway. But they do have one thing in common: They need water under the keel to feel happy.
