Seen in the light
A film about seeing and being seen
Five years ago Ingmar Licht started buying up book estates. Before that, a lot of things went wrong in his life. Alcohol, bankruptcy, unemployment. He collected returnable bottles, used the money to buy a computer and started his book business. His great passion are the shopping lists, photos, letters, etc., used as bookmarks, which the former owners left behind in the books.
A life at sea
The Büsumer Krabbenkutter Damkerort and its crew. For Heiko and the crew, life at sea means freedom from the social norm. For each other, they form a second family while the first waits for them on land. The work requires tough life choices. But the nets remain empty more and more often and the business is no longer profitable.
