Three characters in a traditional fishing community on the Cape coast of South Africa are trying, each in his own quixotic way, to save his community from the ravages of a war for abalone, a marine slug that is on the verge of extinction due to the demand from China, where it is considered a delicacy and aphrodisiac.

This is a one-minute teaser for the documentary-in-progress, HEROES OF THE ABALONE WARS. The trailer was cut from material recorded during a research trip funded by the Dutch Film Fund. Directed and filmed by Heinrich Dahms. Produced by Michele Aime for BUZZMEDIA NETWORK (buzzmedia.net)
