With his best friend Obi relocated and his father, the commanding hero of the navy ship F931 Louise-Marie, frequently away at sea, Kwinten grapples with absence.

Amidst this backdrop of emotional voids, Kwinten discovers unexpected companionship and comfort alongside his dog Jagmur, donkey Carmen, and the neighbour's affable pig, Knorre.
