Sons of Barents

Sons of Barents

Barents Sea, beyond the Arctic Circle. During endless summer days, a ship relentlessly crisscrosses the shoals. Caught up in an industrial pace, and exposed to the dangers of deep-sea fishing, about thirty men work flat out for a few tons of fish. Fishing season after fishing season, what brings these men back to this risky life?
