Overcome with loneliness and a deep nostalgia for his hometown of Guna Yala, Cebaldo—an Indigenous man from a small village in Panama, who has spent much of his life working as a fisherman’s assistant in a small town in northern Portugal—crosses the ocean to return home. Blending documentary and fiction, this poetic film is a deeper investigation of identity, displacement, and memory as the root of the colonial experience.
