Alex, a diver, has been in New Orleans for a long time, working nights in a bar. In Greece, Daphne, his lover, is waiting for him, while warning him "there are no more Penelopes". When Alex gets a job call and decides to accept it, a journey begins, with an initial destination to Alaska and then to the Bering Strait where the dominant element is the loneliness of both himself and the landscapes around him.

 

The completion of the film (one of the last in world cinema to be shot in 35mm), due to financial and bureaucratic problems, took 10 whole years.
