Summary: Muro Ami is a film depicts one of the worst form of child labor in the elligal fishing system. Fredo is the ruthless captain of 150 Muro Ami divers. Pounding and crushing corals underwater to scare the fishes and luring them towards the nets does the illegal fishing. With a high quota to meet, Fredo forces the divers mostly children, to accomplish at least eight dives a day to meet their goal before the millinium. Tired and harassed after the burdening task being given to them, the children have to make do in subhuman conditions in the Aurora, the Muro Ami boat. They slee in rat-infested bunks and are fed only twice a day. Life above the boat is much worse that the suffering the children encounter beneath the sea. For every dive, a child's life is perilously in danger
