    Documentary

    The film shows us a group of fishermen from a village in the Northeast of Brazil that make use of a very peculiar technique when hunting their prey: men of different age groups cradle the captured fishes in their arms, caressing them and kissing their gills, pressing them firmly against their naked chests while they wait for their ultimate death (the absolute climax).
