‘I’m Fijian and I’m 20 years old…’
In this film, the narrator’s voice accompanies his account, the history of hundreds of fishermen in Fiji. Inhabitants of the remote islands in the archipelago, when Chinese companies offer them a new Eldorado, their life suddenly falls apart. The Eldorado is the depths of the sea, and the gold that the Chinese are eager to obtain, sea cucumbers. It may seem easy, but it is dangerous work, unlawful, looting the seabed, accidents… A journey to the depths that will affect them forever!
