On the storm-swollen Aisne in northeastern France, an
alcoholic actor combats both his demons and nature’s
tempests. Along the Main and Rhine in Germany, a
kindhearted logger has but one wish: to travel with the
lumber from his small Franconian hometown to the end of
the river in the Netherlands, where it feeds into the
majestic North Sea. In a bucolic vale in the French

and languid beauty of rivers that give life as quickly as
they take it away.
