Love story of a 60-year-old man living on a boat anchored on the open sea. The taciturn seaman’s companion is an attractive 16-year-old girl whom he found as a child, raised and deeply fell in love with. The man, who is also a gifted archer, patiently counts the days to her approaching 17th birthday when he plans on marrying her. Then one day a nice young man visits the old painted boat. To his great displeasure, the foster father perceives that his young bride fancies the lad. For the old adherent of archaic rituals, a bow serves three important functions: not only is it a swift and sure weapon used to protect his independent existence, but it also foretells the future and can be played as a musical instrument. With its sharp arrows, the bow is a symbol of his strength and manhood.
