The documentary takes a leaf out of Ninni Ravazza's “Diario di Tonnara” homonym book. The story tells about the villages, the communities and the adventures that have marked the daily life of tuna fishermen. A community that develops itself on the sea and, from the sea, borrows its legends, magical rites and sacredness. “Diario di Tonnara” is like a dream, with its dreamlike atmospheres, but it's also a storytelling about strongly reality, destined to be relegated into a traditional cubby. A little universe full of stories and tales passed on from generation to generation and rituals that today struggles to be remembered. Here, Rais, tonnaroti and everyone who revolves around that world, offer the right inspiration to describe Sicilian seaways, tight anchored to tradition, like a primordial and noble value. A perception that echoes throughout the whole island and over.
