For IFI Family we try to bring you films from around the world to enjoy. This month’s film comes from Mexico and tells the story of a young boy, Natan, who is going to live with his Italian mother but will spend a holiday with his father, Jorge, before he leaves.

Jorge is a fisherman, so he wants to teach Natan how to fish in the beautiful clear waters of a coral reef. Together they embark on sea adventures; Natan learns how to reel in fish, to snorkel, to identify sea creatures and plants, to avoid tempting a crocodile and to befriend a white cattle egret. Part documentary, part fiction, the film reminds us at times of Robinson Crusoe. It’s a kind of paradise in some respects but we see that it has hardships too, and Natan and Jorge both know that their time here has to come to an end.
