Passing themselves off as fishermen, two fugitive female lovers find work on a trawler. Far out at sea, a violent storm picks up and Marina, revealed to be female and pregnant, gives birth on board, amongst the oil, ice and fish, to the shock and wonder of the old fishermen. Unable to stop the bleeding, Marina dies. In the grip of the merciless storm, and driven by superstition, the fishermen insist the body goes overboard, with the baby, the only way to calm the sea's anger.
a sea story
The basic virtue - the cinematography. The basic sin - the unrealism of the story. Two girls on the sea. A love story, a storm, the birth of a baby. All , in strange way, familiar. But strange, indeed. Sure, it reminds old stories on the sea. But not in the most fair way and giving the expected emotion. The acting is well, the tension works fair . That is it.
