The Old, the Young and the Sea embarks on an adventurous documentary trip along the Atlantic Coast of France, Spain and Portugal. The movie is framing a vivid snapshot of Europe's post-modern coastal culture, which is significantly influenced by the hippie heritage of the 1960s, modern surfing pop-industry and the vital relationship of coastal inhabitants with Mother Nature. The Old, the Young and the Sea introduces the audience into a world of cultural discovery, surprising encounters and the search for the spirit of traveling. The movie begins with elderly gentlemen; pioneers of the 60s and 70s, telling their story on how surf and with it traveling started for them personally and in Europe generally. Modern day camper Milea introduces us to the casual lifestyle of a traveling surfer now, Guilherme and Jonas are determined to become professional surfers later, what Aritz and Tim already are. Kepa and later Clive give us insight into an alternative life dedicated to the sea, Carlos and Francois show us the environmental problems threatening the sanity of our oceans. And there are Garrett and Guillaume - both very different from another – but both state: Everything is possible if you are willing to take life into your own hands. For all of these characters surfing is a pervading lifestyle. All sorts of ocean lovers all over Europe have their eyes on a very slim stretch of land and water. Documenting this stretch of land The Old, the Young and the Sea captures a schematic picture of vibrant European life through the very personal stories of the movie's protagonists.
