In Gravelines, at the foot of the largest nuclear power station in Europe, the water of the North Sea is warm all year round: 23°C/73°F. Against all reason, fish proliferate in this hyper-industrial milieu, to the great joy of the fishermen.

But the land around the power station is considered to be a military terrain and the access granted to fishermen is based only on a tacit understanding between them and the local authorities. Nonetheless, for 40 years, here, surrounded by barbed wire, on this vague and inhospitable site that they have made their own, they feel at home.
