A proud fisherman, Povl, lives a respected and rugged life in a small tight-knit community on the 18th century Danish west coast. Povl barely survives a tragic accident as a treacherous storm pummels his boat and forces it down - all his men are lost. When the towns-people find him exhausted on the beach they blame him for the tragedy. A tough and lonely existence begins as he is left to survive on this own. The towns-people are meanwhile losing their faith in sea's protecting powers. In desperation Povl decides to convince the superstitious folk that his porcelains figurines can protect them in their hardship. But can Povl live with what he has done, in the risk of being caught in his own lies?
