Carte Blanche Film & Video


Three young men set off on a trip with no clear purpose or objective. While on the deck of the ship heading for their destination, they joke and play games while exchanging reflections on life. Once on land, they carry on with their conversations on a wide range of subjects. As they move through a spectacular, deserted landscape, they stop for a look from time to time.
