The Law of the Sea

In 2016, the steady stream of refugees fleeing Syria was gaining momentum, gradually turning from a trickle into a torrent.

Fisherman on the island of Lesvos, Greece worked tirelessly to help the arriving refugees to shore, to the point that they now discuss it in the same weary, offhand manner as they do their daily fishing routine. The Law of the Sea tells the story of these men and their lives, from the mundane to the shocking, as they give their very human account of a great tragedy of our time.
