Teetje is a young businessman from Rotterdam who thinks he gets the chance of a lifetime by buying a huge Russian container ship. It is only after buying the ship that he finds out that besides the cargo, there is also a complete Russian crew on board. He is ready to deal with it: sail out, sell the cargo and become rich. Teetje will learn that there is more in life than money and that the end of a relationship is the beginning of a new voyage.

Part of the Route 2000 series: four feature films by young talented filmmakers in which the millennium theme is the connecting element.
