|Synopsis||This film is a documentary about the local effects of global fisheries on the small Cape Verdean village. José FORTES, a former footballer returning to his birth place to understand why the beach by the village has disappeared. The fish that provided income and food for generations are disappearing and people are being forced to sell the sand from their beaches just to survive. As the islands have little fresh water and therefore arable land, meaning that around 82% of all food must be imported and the resulting high prices on consumer goods has driven locals to begin the wholesale destruction of their own land and now the last remaining resource, sand, is rapidly vanishing. Furthermore, the vanishing beaches of Cape Verde dissuade tourists from visiting parts of the country, depriving businesses from a vital source of revenue.|
