Semi-documentary, Brazil 2006, 110 min, English subtitles

Fishermen and women from the Baia Formosa act out their daily lives here. A dramatic love story, laconically told. Every day, Jusce sets off to catch lobsters illegally, and at dangerous depths, breathing compressed air through a 30-metres-long tube. His only desire is to be with Ana and her Telenovela. Suddenly, a rival appears in a red sports car ...

The underwater shots were taken by Roberto Faisal, the best Brazilian cameraman in this genre.
