Synopsis
There is a beautiful island in the Baltic Sea, where a group of sailors built their own kingdom. They had it all: seventeen acres of land, endless freedom and a donkey called Geronimo – until their community fell apart. Awoken from a utopian dream, the sailors return to the mainland. Now they live on rusty ships parked in a harbor town, almost within sight of their old home. At night they meet on deck, drinking and telling each other the same old stories. Each of them is haunted by the island's dark and compelling promise. Can they ever break through the spell it cast on them?
