We get to know čupa as a marine vessel through narrations of two ex-fishermen, Zdravko Caharija Babčev and Ladi Gruden Martinčev, as well as a researcher of marine fishery Bruno Volpi Lisjak. The only completely preserved čupa Marija is presented as a museum object by Polona Sketelj, M.A., the curator of SEM. Film depicts how the original čupa was prepared for the exhibition Between Nature and Culture. Reconstruction of rowing was shot with the replica of čupa, which was worked up by the members of Yacht Club Čupa in Sesljan (Sistiana, Italy) in 1998.
