Finis Terrae: The story centres on a small group of men harvesting seaweed off the coast of Brittany, and the problems which arise when one of them gets an infected thumb. The film's title is the old Latin name of the region Finistère, where the story is set, and means 'End of the Earth'. The film is shot in a documentary-like style, with local non-actors in all roles, and frequent handheld camerawork. Also, Epstein often inserts slow motion footage.

The Woman From the End of the World: A criminal ship-owner claims to find radium ore in a lost island in Antarctic Ocean. The ship approaches and the crew find a white woman who lives with her husband with half-insane and his child. She sings Breton songs. All the crew falls in love with her, from where a series of brawls, madness and murders happen. The captain weighs anchor to return peace to his men, however, a young sailor commits suicide of despair.
