Story about young people who chose careers as officers in the merchant navy. (It is said in jargon “giro di bitta” the eye formed by the upper stripe which indicates the rank of officer on the uniforms).

On board a cargo ship, life is not easy, you work 7 days a week on shifts, staying at sea for months away from your family, forcibly living with the crew and without great entertainment. A challenging journey faced with determination.

They are Daniele, 22 years old, third deck officer; Gianluca, 25, who started as a wiper on cruise ships and is now an engine cadet; Giovanni and Elisabetta, both 20 years old, deck cadets and Michele, 29 years old, the second deck officer who spends an hour a day studying to become a first officer. As a passenger there was Riccardo, a young student passionate about the sea, who came aboard to live the experience and decide if his future will be in the merchant navy.
