Georgie is a professional fisherman, but he hopes for a better future for his children. Living off the lagoons of Mauritius is not sustainable anymore. While his father raised 11 children from working as a full-time fisherman, Georgie is the father of two and works three jobs to make ends meet. He understands the importance of a healthy ocean and urges the fisher community to work with policy-makers to protect their marine resources. In the voice of fishers, the film provides solutions for the sustainable management of Mauritian lagoons.
