Marius works with his father César at the Bar de la Marine on the Old Port of Marseille. His biggest dream is to embark on one of the boats passing by his dad's bar and to set off to a faraway land. Fanny, a young and pretty seafood peddler, has secretly been in love with Marius since her childhood; Marius, never admitting it, has always loved Fanny. One day, a sailor drops by La Marine and offers him a job on an exploratory ship. Trying to keep him from leaving, Fanny tries to make him jealous with an older man who has been courting her for a while. So Marius finds himself torn between the call of the sea and his love for Fanny.
