    • Synopsis
    • End of 1991. The Latar II, a soviet fishing ship with 60 crewmembers on board, sails to Mar del plata, Argentina.
      Moscow 1991, Gorbachov resigns his post, the URSS has stopped existing.
      The crew ‘s passports belong to a country that no longer exists. At sea, sailors listen to the news in the radio. Hopelessness appears.
      The abandoned sailors claim for their salaries. A trial against the shipowners, politic interests, personal interests, a brutal capitalism that’s starting, obscure bussinesses between the former URSS and Argentina.
      Nowadays, the Latar II crew, are nationless men; without a home; they are lost and they try to rescue their memories every day, in an uncertain future.
