»Each year about 2,600,000 tons of shellfish and fish are caught in the North Sea. Each year about 16 million tons of industrial waste and about 100,000 tons of sea mud are dumped in the North Sea. Each year some 100,000 tons of poisonous chemicals are burnt in the North Sea. Each year the North Sea receives some 400,000 tons of oil and drilling sludge. Some people call it »a mere drop in the ocean.«The film invites the spectator to set our on a shock voyage through the North Sea: from the Danish firm of Cheminova on the west coast of Jutland, through the port of Esbjerg, down to the River Elbe and through the port of Hamburg, on to the mouth of the Weser and the Rhine to the island of Texel off the Netherlands, and then over to Grimsby in England. The theme of the film is pollution and the consequences it has has on fish, seals - and human beings.
