Short poetic film based on the poem Ithaka by the Greek poet Constantine Kaváfis (1863-1933) about the freedom of travelling. Along the shore, vague figures can be distinguished in the distance. A sailing vessel looms up on the horizon like a mirage. The film is also inspired by Werner Herzog's film Fata Morgana.
