Luzzu

Trasfoco: Fishing

Jesmark is a Maltese fisherman. He has just had a child and is almost bankrupt. And although the sea runs in his blood and a love for his work is alive in each and every one of his memories, he cannot escape the fact that the world he was born into is no longer able to provide him with what he needs to maintain his family. Sometimes it is the lack of fish, other times the behaviour of lax and corrupt local authorities. A leak in his Luzzu, a traditional Maltese boat his father had built with his own hands, makes things even worse. This is when Jesmark has to take one of the toughest decisions of his life.
