The final moments of a man before he vanishes into s stormy night at sea. Inside a boat, he scribbles something on a piece of paper. A goodbye letter? Or is something else going on in this experiment with perspective?

The wind cries and the rain mercilessly pelts the small windows of the rudderless boat someone is seeking shelter on. The outboard motor has broken down. By the sparse light of a torch, the man desperately tries to bail out the water that pours in. He puts a note into a bottle. The dramatic situation attains meaning through the chosen perspective.
