Shortlisted for an Academy Award, this is a story of a Somali boy who is faced with falling into the pirate life, or rising above to choose the path of an honest fishing man. A war torn developing country presents young kids with very tough choices and few opportunities. Asad, chooses loyalty and honesty even when faced with the danger of death. Tragic circumstances lead to his unusual catch at sea (a white Persian cat in a sailor suit), which defines him as a most extraordinary fisherman. Shot in South Africa with an all-Somali refugee cast it is sure to touch you.
