    Eighty-two-year-old Etta has never seen the ocean. So early one morning she takes a rifle, some chocolate, and her best boots, and begins walking the 3,232 kilometers from rural Canada eastward to the coast. Her husband Otto wakes to a note left on the kitchen table. "I will try to remember to come back," Etta writes to him. Otto has seen the ocean, having crossed the Atlantic years ago to fight in a far-away war. He understands. But with Etta gone, the memories come crowding in and Otto struggles to keep them at bay.

    Etta hat noch nie das Meer gesehen. Und so schnappt sich die 82-Jährige eines Morgens ihre besten Wanderschuhe und macht sich auf den 3.000 Kilometer langen Weg an die Küste. Ihr Mann Otto versteht Ettas Wunsch, und trotz aller Sorge lässt er sie ziehen. Ihr Nachbar Russell dagegen will sie unbedingt zurückholen. Zum ersten Mal in seinem Leben fügt er sich nicht und verlässt seine Farm. Je näher Etta dem Meer kommt, desto stärker erinnern sich die drei an ihre Jugend in einem kargen Kanada; an ihre ersten Begegnungen, Trennungen, Versäumnisse und Erfahrungen, die sie nicht miteinander geteilt haben.

    Etta's greatest unfulfilled wish, living in the rolling farmland of Saskatchewan, is to see the sea. And so, at the age of eighty-two she gets up very early one morning and begins walking the 2,000 miles to water. Meanwhile her husband Otto waits patiently at home, left only with his memories. Their neighbour Russell remembers too - and he still loves Etta as much as he did more than fifty years ago, before she married Otto.
