“This short documentary focuses around ATEC, an organization in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica, that works to connect tourists with locals working in the industry. These locals are very concerned about the imminent destruction of their homes and lives, and the future of their children, due to laws that seem aimed to remove them not just from the Caribbean, not just from the coastline, but from the land entirely.
