Coco Schrijber

In this film the sea becomes a haven for mankind, locked in its struggle with its indifferent universe. Lex, Rebecca, and Miguel each have their own reasons to place their lives in the hands of the capricious waters. The question remains, however, of whether they will find what they so anxiously seek underneath the surface of the waters.
