It's the story of a Sicilian island, fishermen, almost intact. Just leaped from tourism, which also begins to change the behaviors and mentality of the islanders. And at the same time invested by the arrivals of the clandestines, and by the new rule of refusal: the very negation of the culture of the sea, which obliges the rescue. A family of fishermen with a center of great authority in the center, a young woman who does not want to give up living a better life and a boy who, in confusion, seeks for her moral road. All faced with a decision to take, which will signal their life.
