Sea Gypsies is a short film from Why Poverty? about struggling to survive in an idyllic island which has become a tourist destination.

Indanina and her family live in on a beautiful coral island of Eastern Malaysia. When heavy fishing restrictions are imposed on their gypsy way of life, they are forced from their family homes and into a life of poverty. While they live under a motorway bridge and beg for handouts, their home is demolished to make room for a tourist diving resort.
