80 min.DK/FeatureChildren's films

The Father of four-family is preparing for the wedding of Søs and Peter. The house is upside down with preparations and in the middle of all that the family all of a sudden has to arrange a trip to Funen to help Peter's fosterdad, Skipper. His training ship, Valborg, has over time given many orphaned boys a good start in life. But now the ship is falling apart and can only be saved if Skipper wins first prize in the yearly regatta for old wooden ships in the waters around Funen.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
