Knud, who went to sea as a 14-year-old, goes ashore 50 years later wearing the captain’s hat, and memories from two world wars in the ship’s coffin. He has survived submarine attacks, crashes and the yellow fever. Along the way, he also meets love, and although it is not easy to be both a captain and a family man, his wife Anna and the children have cultivated him as a hero. But when he goes ashore, he is caught in new storms that even two world wars have not been able to prepare him for.
