The Sea You Have to Love accompanies the crew of a small fishing boat and a retired fisherman on the Adriatic. Two captains, connected by their love of the sea and a dying profession. Never at anchor, always rocking in the rhythm of the waves, swashing over to the viewers is the sailor’s attitude to life, an ambivalent experience of freedom and instability.
