Angela and Jair trawl the volcanic coast, battered by the ocean, in search of the small fry that will ensure survival in their fishing village. They must learn to coexist with the visiting “big-game” fishermen looking for blue marlin. In adeptly composed frames, Pierre-François Sauter shows the effects of coastal international tourism on Cape Verde.
