A trawler slices through the trou­bled waters in the vast mar­itime area sep­a­rat­ing Sicily from Africa. On board, the fish­er­men are busy sort­ing out and clean­ing the fish, throw­ing out the small­er ones to the seag­ulls. When a storm breaks out, they find shel­ter on the island of Lampedusa.
