Accompanied by Jean-Luc Barbier's beautiful jazz-score, the steady disintegration of a Swiss seaman is elegantly depicted. Jumping ship in Lisbon, the married man becomes entangled with a barmaid and sends reels of home movies back to his wife. Robbed, stabbed and loveless, the broken man must return home.
