A group of six good-natured men embark on a fishing foray to distant Norway. They are united by long-term friendship and desire for male adventure.

The sea gives them freedom; and the desire to fulfil their dreams propels them after their colossal catch. But first, they must overcome the bad weather, unreliable technology, and their own amusing missteps. And perhaps it turns out that the most valuable thing cannot be found at the end of the rod. What are the secrets of male fishing expeditions?
