A boy is torn between his natural ineptitude and the need to break away from the clutches of his bleak environment. The son of a sailor, the boy lives a mockery of his father's life, rowing a rotting boat across an ancient harbour.

The film explores the moment the boy's frustration with his life, and with having to put up with the enseamed union between overbearing mother and weaselly uncle, boils over.

Steeped in a dark, liquefied decrepitude, the film is inspired by Shakespeare's Hamlet.
