DIE STEENBORG, 2005
The Steenborg is a small coaster. It´s cruising along the baltic and the north seeshores, up and down and its transporting malt, palm and corn. But the ship didn’t act only as a cargo. Jens Boysen, the captain and holder of the ship is also an educationist. Every two month he takes three boys, between the age of 13 and 16 years, on his cruise. The teenagers are maladjusted and mostly they don`t know how to act rightly in the society. As a last activity, already disgusted by the Youth Welfare Office, on the Steenborg, they will get their last possibility to be resocialized by disziplin and work-therapy.
