In the middle of the Aegean Sea, on a luxury yacht, six men on a fishing trip decide to play a game. During this game, things will be compared. Things will be measured. Blood will be tested. Friends will become rivals and rivals will become hungry. But at the end of the voyage, the man who wins will be the best man and he will wear upon his little finger the victorious signet ring: the “Chevalier.”
Η ιστορία της ταινίας αναφέρεται σε μια παρέα αντρών, που επιστρέφει από χειμερινή εκδρομή ψαρέματος με ένα γιοτ. Όταν μια μηχανική βλάβη τους εγκλωβίζει στο σκάφος, κάπου στον Σαρωνικό, θα «σκοτώσουν» την ώρα τους με ένα αυτοσχέδιο παιχνίδι που ονομάζεται «Chevalier». Το παιχνίδι είναι τόσο διασκεδαστικό, όσο και βαθιά ανταγωνιστικό. Κανείς δεν θα κατέβει από το σκάφος, αν δεν ανακηρυχτεί ο νικητής.
“(…) this film is not about individual stories, experiences and relationships so much as the mechanisms and patterns that emerge whenever and wherever people are together. (…) what happens in the film doesn’t necessarily resemble real life in a narrow documentary sense but instead gives the viewer something else: a chance to consider certain behavior from various sides and on a more abstract level.”
