Synopsis

A documentary about the last days of the Borneo sea nomads. A touching story of a 10-year-old Sari and his uncle Alexan, the last Badjao compressor diver from Mabul island and their unique bond with the ocean. The film presents the Badjao tribe’s ancient traditions as a magical narrative, spinning the urgent pressures into a hybrid of fantasy, fiction and fact.
