I found the synopsis -

The Dominican Republic is a small island in the Caribbean with a population of just over nine million, a stable economy and a democratic system of government. Known for its beaches, music and famous baseball players, the island looks like paradise. But, a closer look reveals the wealth of this paradise touches only a few, leaving most in search of alternative, often drastic solutions.

Those wanting to leave the island often attempt to go to the U.S. and emigrate with residency or tourist visas. Those who don?t have the opportunity to travel with a visa try by any means to reach the closest U.S. port: the island of Puerto Rico, just 60 miles east of the Dominican Republic.

Crammed into fragile, wooden boats ("yola"), Dominicans risk their lives in search of better ones. In the past twenty years, more then 500,000 people have put their lives in jeopardy crossing the shark-infested waters of the Mona Passage, leading to Puerto Rico. Approximately 200,000 Dominicans have arrived safely on the opposite shore. Others have been caught and brought back, soon to try the voyage again. But the rest are simply said to be...disappeared.

Can you tell us why without giving too much of the movie away?
I wanted to know more of what the people were thinking on the yola, I thought more interviews of them at that time were warranted, instead of just watching the boat sway back and forth with music in the background or listening to them argue. I thoroughly enjoyed the interviews they had of them before the trip.

Hope I didn't give away too much!

Too much of nothing...
You can only watch people sway back and forth with sad faces for so long...

Evidently not the view of HBO who are interested in obtaining the rights & translating to other languages.

Congratulations Jorge!! :) Hope negotiations come to a successful conclusion.

Very kind of you, CFA, thank you. We have visitors staying in the house for the next 2 weeks so I wouldn't get the time to watch & return it anytime soon but it'd be nice to see you again :). I'll email you.
