It?s an everyman tale about a middle-aged, seasick electrician with no money who suddenly and for no reason decides to sail around the world. It?s the story of Yanne Larsson, a man with a dream born not out of a passion for sailing or a search for identity or the need for a challenge. This is the story of a simple handshake. One of the old-fashion iron-clad ones. A casual suggestion over wine with best friend Carl Andersson, turns into one of those ideas that just won?t go away. Twenty-four hours later, a handshake decides it. The little details ? buying a boat, learning to sail and saving up money ? take five years, but in 2002, the two men leave Helsingborg, Sweden on a three-year voyage that will change them forever.
