Posté à Bord

Several times a year, a big factory trawler, leaves the Island of the Reunion and spends 3 months in the Indian Ocean off the Kerguelen Islands. Fishing over there is really risky in a mostly rough sea. On board, 30 fishermen from all countries, locally engaged by the captain of the trawler. For three months cut off from real life, they live a timeless life sharing danger, fear, exhaustion and promiscuity. Out of time? You bet!
