Outside common, under the moon, between the waves, against the wind, during the storm, scenes are alternated.
They compose the universe of long journeys, they import the unknown, they reach for the exotic, they choose the danger, they foresee the wreck, they counterbalance time, they wave, they transpose the coming home, they return to the whirlpool, they succumb to fate, they defend the dream.
