An internal journey, as an out loud thought, to the source of life that is the sea, exemplified and humanized by the fishing cycle. Mist is a visual documentary chronicling the fragility and at the same time, the strength of life. Mist observes and contemplates the human condition, and the different ways of existing using the sea as a metaphorical space, the fishing cycle, and the people that survive through this ancestral relationship.
