The author of the film is Bohdan Kowalski, who works as a Polish language teacher by day. His passions were travelling, film and photography. He was also co-founder of the Ińsko Film Summer, the University of the Third Age and the Film Discussion Club in Stargard. 

A film made in the 1970s probably during a cruise through the Norwegian fjords. A marine pilot descends a ladder (pilot ladder) from a ship to a smaller vessel, a so-called pilot boat. Bohdan and another man are standing on the deck and looking through binoculars. Shots of the lighthouse, harbor and buildings on passing coastlines. Bohdan is standing on the deck and looking ahead. Crew members are chatting by the side at the bow of the ship.
