Brief Synopsis
"Dhīvaraḥ" explores the delicate balance between faith, work, and the urgent need for environmental conservation. This short documentary delves into the religious and demanding routine that fishermen have to go through every time they venture into the sea, but as climate change makes it harder to catch fish, which flee to cooler waters, and with a slowly decaying industry complicates the livelihood of the fisherfolk, the fishermen have to go out facing a concerning unpredictability, as fishing is not just a hobby but a way of life.
