Santa Cruz del Islote is a three-acre island about fifty miles off the coast of Cartagena, Colombia. It is a community of about 600 people making it one of the most densely populated islands in the world. This region's lucrative fishing, which encouraged such over development, has dwindled in recent years, and the island's subsistence has become increasingly uncertain. In following a fisherman and a ten-year-old boy, this short captures the complexity of cherishing a peaceful way of life that can no longer continue with ease.
