Between Home is a high spirited,  poetic adventure documentary, that chronicle’s a young person’s rites of passage, from novice sailor to expert in three years of life aged in salt, sun and wind.


In May 2007, after a chance meeting in a Berlin bar, Australian Nick Jaffe confesses to ex-pat filmmaker Jack Rath that he’s needs to learn to sail so  he can make a 26.000 km passage from Europe home to Australia. Fascinated with what might possess a 25 year old with no sailing experience to  take on such a challenge, and questioning if it’s Nick’s mysterious family history that’s the catalyst for his voyage, Jack vows to follow him. Filmed over four years, ‘Between Home’ documents the odyssey of this Australian whiz-kid programmer and artist – from England and his purchase  of a second hand-boat in desperate need of repair, through to his homecoming some three years later and the isolation, fear and exhilaration of the  journey in between.

Description

Details

Driven by an idealistic determination not to ‘sell out’ and settle down like his peers, Nick doggedly pursues his dream.  He lives hand to mouth for months, relying on the kindness of strangers at every port along the way. When he sinks too deep into debt, he invites the world to experience his dream through a blog that will help fund his voyage. The generosity of people wanting him to succeed is overwhelming. Yet when Nick’s dream becomes their dream, it adds pressures and forces him to reconsider whose dream is it that he’s pursuing. When sailing alone, Nick keeps a video log and over the years Jack joins him around the world including a road trip across the U.S over a cold winter. In his final leg home, an exhausted Nick voyages through the Pacific, experiencing love, loss, and even a tsunami.  

As he finally reaches his home shore Australia, there is only one person waiting and Nick experiences a curious kind of closure.
