synopsis

Surfing professional Jaan and ecology expert Svenja risk their own lives fighting for the rescue of Sylt. A financially distressed energy-corporation causes a water-quake by illegal research drillings. The resulting flood destroys the beaches of Sylt without prior warning. As a second this time deliberately caused flood-wave approaches the German coast, Jaan and Svenja develop and execute an intelligent but highly dangerous plan to avoid the worst.
