For many communities, the ocean has been a source of income and livelihood for generations. The story of The Ocean is told from the perspective of two different types of fishermen who have dedicated their lives to this craft. As they express their values, we discover their appreciation and respect for the sea. This story further highlights the decline in opportunities for livelihood by fisherman, due to overfishing and poor government policies.
