Germany’s deep sea fisherman are the last of a dying breed. These men are courageous and hard working, risking their lives in a profession that rewards them little for every ounce of blood and sweat they give. Storm Riders documents how three fishing vessels and their crews pursue their dangerous and demanding job, with passion, professionalism and pride. The series realistically depicts the dangers and risks the fishermen face, the extreme highs and lows of success and failure and the lives of their worried families who wait patiently at home.
