Near Bremen, swans have disappeared from the surface of water. On the Lake Starnberg, a desperate fisherman struggled for ten hours in his boat which was pulled to and fro by a fish. In the Vitava, a fish stomach with parts of a human body in it, was found. The sheatfish or catfish is the biggest fresh-water fish in Europe. He is a curse, a legendary figure, delicious meal and a monster. Two men, namely the most famous specialist of sheatfish in Europe, Olivier Portrat, and the underwater cameraman Sigi Braun – try to unravel the mystery of the “mythic sheatfish” and invite us on an exciting journey on rivers and lakes.
