A documentary produced by Histadrut and shipping company ZIM, in an attempt to attract Israeli youth to maritime careers.
The Israeli Merchant Navy employs 4117 seamen, of whom 2732 are Israelis. This film follows the crews of ZIM’s passenger and cargo ships and documents the seamen’s work: maintenance of the ship, navigation, operation of the engine room, and even a visit to an Italian port city. Between their tasks, the sailors find time to write to their loved ones on land.
