A five-part series on itchy feet and untold dreams, high-tech cranes and homesick nights, tedium and sailor’s brides. This series is a portrait of the legendary and extraordinary ports of the world: New York, Vladivostok, Shanghai, Hamburg and Dubai.
We discover their self-sufficient microcosm by accompanying people who have business there. Each and every one of them had a very personal reason for coming to the port. And everyone followed the myth of yearnings and adventure.
