Malagasy (Veso Dialect)
This film focuses on the life of one woman, whose story aims to shed light on the vicious link between poverty and environmental degradation in Madagascar and beyond. After losing her father at age 13, Felicia turns to the sea as a means for sustenance, even when migration, commercial trawling, and cultural loss make small-scale fishing operations an increasingly challenging way of life. Felicia continues to harvest scarce resources not out of ignorance but out of necessity. Her life story, filled with hardships and setbacks, also reveals the resolute temperament that characterizes her and many other women in Madagascar..
