The Dutchman, a ghostly sailor condemned to wander for all eternity, sets foot on land every seven years to search for a bride who can end the curse and bring him peace. In a small Norwegian fishing village he encounters Senta, a young woman betrothed to a young man in the village. She is obsessed with the Dutchman’s legend. Can this finally be his chance for redemption? Can the power of true love break the curse and end his suffering?
