The everyday life of the crew aboard a Sicilian deep sea fishing boat begins to mirror the present and the economic crisis, which has affected the entire existence of the Italian and Tunisian fisherman, pent up for weeks between the hold and the deck.
This story takes place on the open sea between Lampedusa and the African coast, where the dramas of the immigrants cross, and in Mazara del Vallo, which boasts a port that shelters the largest fishing fleet in Italy as well as a large Tunisian community.
