Life on the ship is set. Professional kinship is developed as common aspirations and perils define life on board.

Despite their differences, friendships between these seamen are developed.
After several months on his most recent voyage in the ship, Benjo gets an emergency call from his wife, Mina to inform him that her ill father just passed away. Deeply affected by the death of his father-in-law who was a second father to him, Benjo sadly informs his wife that he cant come back for his father-in-laws funeral.
