The Sailor. The last voyage of a man of the sea

All his life Paul Johnson wanted to be free, to be out in nature and, above all, to be away from people. He simply wanted to belong nowhere. So he set sail once and never again settled on land.

Having been a dedicated sailor all his life, Paul now faces the rough and silent storm of old age. His strength has waned, as has his desire to breathe earthly air. Is it time to end the voyage of a lifetime?
