A hardworking Maltese fisherman, Jesmark is faced with an agonizing choice. He can repair his leaky luzzu -- a traditional, multicolored wooden fishing boat -- in the hopes of eking out a meager living at sea for his wife and newborn son, just as his father and grandfather did before him. Or he can decommission it in exchange for an EU payout and cast his lot with a sinister black-market operation that is decimating the Mediterranean fish population and the livelihoods of the local families who depend on it.

Reviews
A moving portrait of a world in flux, and one man attempting to survive the changes thrust upon him by a baffling outside world.
Sheila O'Malley, RogerEbert.com
An honest, affecting slab of working-class portraiture, altogether bracing with its thorny labor politics and salty sea air.
