Jermal 

Jermal


After his mother’s death, a boy is sent to the jermal (a fishing platform perched insecurely on log stilts in the middle of the sea) where his father works as a supervisor. The father is shocked, never knowing he has a son, and rejects the boy as his child, but is forced to accept him as a worker on the site. The boy learns how to survive on the jermal and his father eventually learns to face and accept his past.
