Summary The ocean swarms with animal and plant life. For centuries, some species have been greatly sought after by man. Among them is a peaceful, inoffensive animal which has become one of the great food delicacies of Asia. Men go out further and further from shore in search of it. Challenging their physical limits, they dive deeper in order to snatch the sea cucumber from the sand. This is Madagascar, where the sea cucumber is called the dinga-dinga. Amad belongs to the Antakaran people. In the village, he is called Amad the diver. When the dry season arrives, he takes advantage of the wind shifts to go out to the sea for diving. But diving is dangerous, and the medium of the village consults the ancestors to ask for their protection. If the fishing is successfull, the dinga dinga will have to be prepared before the merchant comes. Director: Benoit Segur (Madagascar).
