Santa Cruz del Islote is a three-acre island about fifty miles off the coast of Cartagena, Colombia. In this short documentary, we meet two islanders—a fisherman and a ten-year-old boy—who are contemplating their future. While one mourns the decreasing fish population, the other dreams of an education off the island. Both are at the nexus of change, with forces beyond their control likely to extinguish their traditional way of life.
