Story of handicapped boy becoming friends with a turtle
The films is about a south pacific tale of a young deaf boy with no friends until he meets a (rare) white sea turtle and they become friends. Filmed at the scenic location in Aitutaki lagoon, Cook Islands, this is the type of low budget film with a lot of heart and warmth. Remarkably a lot of locals where involved playing various roles; some of them can be still met today (2000) in Aitutaki. The film highlights both the problem of being isolated because being different (here the main character is deaf) and the joy and strength of friendship.
I recommend this film for anyone 6 years and older.
