"Ocean" tells a story that is taking us from the European coast of the Atlantic, over the Caribbean to the Pacific and on to the Hawaii Islands. This film is a sort of diary. In a poetic way it reconstructs the moment of death of a close person by recording the events, or more precisely the lack of events, in a situation brought by the condition of the narrow space of the cargo ship in the endless space of the open sea. The protagonists' quest in crossing the ocean carries the story and the viewer on the journey through and towards the unknown, that acquires its shape in the glittering of the waves and the magnificent breadth of the horizon offered by the open sea.
