A ferry makes its way through ice, floating in the wintery Baltic sea. But nothing in the dark, cold night is noticeable inside the ship, where a dance program is taking place. The camera attentively observes the guests scattered across the dance floor, tipsy teenagers swaying back and forth, as well as those who prefer just to watch. The real object of fascination in this film is the artists, who bring a moment of magic into a world that already seems rather unreal. Two guests continue their dance like a pair of doves down the endless corridors deep inside the ship. With its atmospheric density, "Icebreakers" captures what might be regarded as a rather unglamorous party, one featuring guests who meet through the coincidence of having fled the ice-cold darkness outside. The director portrays this night with gentle irony but without a trace of sarcasm and evokes a feeling of a journey into the unknown, full of nostalgia and hope.
