The Flying Dutchman is doomed to roam the sea forever without rest. Every seven years he is allowed to come to shore in order to find a loving and faithful woman. That will break the curse. When Senta who feels like a stranger amongst her own people falls in love with the Dutchman, she desperately wants to help him. But he is in doubt about her true feelings.
