Praised as a “true wanderlust film”: Untie The Lines is a movie about one woman’s determination to grab hold of her dream and making it reality, embarking on a three year long solo sailing adventure. This movie triggers our "Fernweh", the wish to break away from the norm and to pursue our dreams. 

Untie The Lines is made from the weekly YouTube documentary in which Berenike Steiger, called Nike, is portraying the ups and downs of her dream to live on a sailboat and to travel the world by sea. Nike, former marketing manager from L√ľneburg (Northern Germany), decides to quit her job and let go of the comforts of home in her early thirties. She reduces her belongings to the essentials, packs her bags and buys an old sailboat in Panama. Even though she has very little sailing experience, she dreams to set sails with her boat that she calls “Karl” - all by herself. The casting off is a big challenge: The condition of the boat was a lot worse than expected, the engine fails continuously and the hull is damaged from corrosion. Quickly, two months of planned repairs turn into twelve. Nike is starting to doubt her own abilities and begins to wonder if she made a big mistake in buying such a work-intensive boat. But she does not give up and finally makes her dream come true – she unties the lines.

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.
