The director and protagonist in one sets sail with her boyfriend on a cargo ship to Hawaii. The goal of their journey is to scatter the ashes of their friend at sea. Using primarily static scenes, this intuitive film presents a highly personal pilgrimage, during which the off-screen commentary touches on language, death and friendship. The result is a light contemplative journal that sails along the tumbling ocean waves and with the lazy passing of time mixes contemplations about Hugh Pratt, releasing weather balloons and thoughts about death.

"It’s strange when you meet someone like that, to help him die."

“Ocean" is 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. It reconstructs the moment of death of a close person by recording the events, or more precisely the lack of events, in a situation that the narrow space of the cargo ship in the endless space of the open sea is bringing.
