Presented with the Global Foundation for Democracy and Development (GFDD) and the Dominican Republic Environmental Film Festival (DREFF)

Preceded by the short film Aristolochias of Haiti

Five fishermen from Manresa, a poor neighborhood to the West of Santo Domingo, transitioned from sea turtle nest predators to conservationists of the species. Their 4-year transformative process was implemented by marine biologist Omar Shamir Reynoso, who developed a one-of-a-kind plan in the Dominican Republic that involves fishermen and communities alike in conservation efforts.
