A film about the fight for the Guanabara Bay of Rio de Janeiro and the right to be a fisherman with dignity. The Guanabara Bay is until today one of the most polluted bays in the world: millions of liters of untreated sewage, more than a thousand tons of solid waste a day, highly polluting slurry from the various legal and ilegal waste dumps and the sewage from the powerful oil industry. The 2016 Olympic Games did not change this scandalous situation that destroys the existence of the fishermen of the bay: "The only thing that I did not lose was my dignity," says fisherman GeraldÃ£o, 62 years old.
