What follows is a fascinating circumnavigation of the Western Caribbean, a roller coaster ride through tears and utter bliss. Again and again, she has to leave her comfort zone. Throughout the movie, you can see her sweating through 2.000 hours of refitting her new floating home and sailing more than 4.000 nautical miles, forming a beautiful unity between her and her boat “Karl”. At the end of the movie, Nike will have transformed from a landlubber to a salty sailing woman, who adapted her needs and skills to the rules of the ocean.
For three years, Nike Steiger documented her endeavors on camera. She entertains over 50.000 followers worldwide that join her in her epic journey on YouTube. Those hours of self-made video material – plus interviews with Nike, her friends and family, back ground information and charts – are now made into a full-length movie. Untie The Lines inspires to cast off on our own journey, to make our own dreams come true.
