Was it worth it? Where is the line between selfishness and freedom? Eighty-year-old Paul Johnson asks these questions at the end of his life. Paul is a sailor, living on his small boat Cherub off the island of Carricau in the southern Caribbean, and he tells his life story. Looking at him, you would hardly guess that he was a famous ship designer long ago, having sailed the Atlantic Ocean forty times himself or that he patented a boat. He had several wives who eventually left him with their children because they needed a normal life. But he could never live on land, even when he tried. But now he's alone with his boat, which is broken. Neither of them are capable of further sailing.
