Heide, Holland (Netherlands).
Various flashback shots of the crew of the Hong Kong freighter 'Ping An' being rescued by Dutch coast guards after she has run aground off the Dutch coast in heavy storm. Various shots of gang of ship breakers at work on the 'Ping An' with oxyacetylene cutters, breaking up the ship, etc. The ship was unable to be re-floated so to break her up was the only solution.
