a buddy movie without the buddies

In the middle of the Aegean Sea, on a luxury yacht,
six men on a fishing trip decide to play a game.
During this game, things will be compared.
Things will be measured.
Songs will be butchered, and blood will be tested.

Friends will become rivals and rivals will become hungry.

But at the end of the voyage, when the game is over,

the man who wins will be the best man.
And he  - the best in general - will wear upon his littlest finger

the victorious signet ring: the “Chevalier”.
