As an 80 year old sailor who yearns for the sea and a stiff wind and who still looks at boats-for-sale, this beautifully filmed documentary made me wistful. I, too, am pushing off for my last voyage...DAMN IT. Really good film, but watch it before you are 50 so you can buy a boat and sail...if only on weekends.

What is the price of freedom? Paul Johnson sailed the world all his life. He loved, drank and lived foolish, never truly living on land. Now he is turning eighty. Both him and his boat are unfit to sail. He drinks a liter of vodka a day and contemplates his life, his death. What is at the end of such a journey? Is there loneliness? What is the relationship between freedom and selfishness? Does fulfilling a dream always have a bitter end?
