Romero Kantún is a retired fisherman, who lives mired in nostalgia and accompanied by ghosts of the life that he did not have. But he feels that it is time to reclaim the love and honor that he lost decades ago, when fate made him discover the great oil field that ended fishing on his island and won him the fishermen’s rejection.
