A fishline in hand, the sun on her neck and the constant rhythm of the waves beneath her bare feet. To Dora, this is heaven. Here, fishing at sea, she finds her purpose. The ocean’s vastness offers her an escape from the judgmental men of her small fishing village, men who disapprove of her passion, her vocation. The fishline digging into her hand and the tug of a fish at the other end fuels her desire to prove everyone wrong.
