This short film sheds light on the life of one woman, whose story aims to provide a firsthand experience of the vicious link between poverty and environmental degradation in developing countries like Madagascar. As an orphan and later as a mother, Felicia turns to the sea as a means for sustenance, even when migration, commercial trawling, and cultural loss make small-scale fishing an increasingly challenging way of life.
