Life On The Halligen Islands Pt 1

A harsh wind blowing across the North Frisian Islands. But the strapping Patrick Andresen, in his mid-30s, does not let the weather disturb his work. He is wearing his sou'wester, the most important item of clothing on the Halligen Islands.

Patrick Andresen takes care of the old, sick and helpless on the Halligen Islands. Day after day, he drives to his patients, through the mudflats, in his self-built, almost primeval looking, lawnmower-engine-powered vehicle on tracks, between the mainland and the Halligen Islands. He arrived here only 3 years ago but already cannot imagine life back on the mainland.
