Against the backdrop of the rich Pacific ocean lives a family below poverty line. Hector, the head of his family must decide on two dangerous occupations, deep sea diving and ferrying illegal immigrants. Diving recompense is pittance while ferrying illegal immigrants pays more than he makes in a year. How can he decide between the two to survive and alleviate his family from poverty. People belonging to the marginalised sectors face these choices on a daily basis around the world. A universal theme set in beautiful Mexico.
