The lives of women who marry into the boat life will not be easy. Some haven't even seen the sea before but they calmly and silently accept their fate. They raise their children on the boats. Some don't even know how to swim although they seek shelter in the open sea for years. They learn to stay positive in spite of their difficult living conditions and learn to cope with all difficulties in the endless sea. They are the altruistic brides of mother nature… This documentary deals with the life of women who earn their livelihood fishing with their husbands and children at Datça-Bozburun.
