Almost 19-year-old Marius feels himself in a rut in Marseille, his life planned for him by his cafe'-owning father, and he longs for the sea. The night before he is to leave on a 5-year voyage, Fanny, a girl he grew up with, reveals that she is in love with him, and he discovers that he is in love with her. He must choose between an exciting life at sea, and a boring life with the woman he loves. And Fanny must choose between keeping the man she loves, and letting him live the life he seems to want.

[Torn between Fanny and his dream
Fanny. Only you can stop me. Now tell me that you love me. Tell me now!
Marius, I tell you... you are free to go.
Alright. Then it's settled. Each to his love! You will marry Panisse's money, and I will marry the sea!
