Two old pals lose their work as inland navigators on the River Elbe. While the vernacular Gero tries to regain his footing, the reckless Kowsky keeps gambling with friendship and life, over and over again. For all that, together they set out from Dresden for Hamburg, hoping to find a new job, a new love, a new life. For old time's sake, their road is the Elbe.
