This is an untold story of Ludger Dochtermann, an eccentric yet beloved Alaskan captain from Kodiak, who has been a fisherman for over 40 years. Born in Germany in 1942, Ludger happens to be one of those extraordinary men who carry a heavy burden on their shoulders. This is also a story of the director Boris Veličan, who is trying to run away from the burden of his childhood.
