Angela and Jair survive by fishing for food on the wave-beaten volcanic rocks. Their life as a couple is under stress and their existence is precarious. In their fishing village, which is being transformed into a touristic spot, they rub shoulders with Big Game Fishing enthusiasts who pay fortunes to enjoy themselves and prepare for the Blue Marlin World Cup by hunting the « cheetah of the seas ».
