Portugal, 2016, 112 min


A dive, the noon sunlight cuts through the water. The air on both longs will have to be enough to rip the abalone from the rocks in the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. With no aid from air tanks, the body as a whole is summoned to its limit. In Wagu, a fishing village in the Ise Peninsula, Matsumi, Mayumi and Masumi dive everyday not knowing what they'll find. Underwater, their delicate bodies turn into those of sea hunters. The Ama-San have been diving like this in Japan for over 2000 years.
