Andaboy is a sacred beach in Southwestern Madagascar. Elders say it should remain uncontaminated. Local population lives off fishing. The construction of a port by the Australian company Base Toliara jeopardizes its equilibrium, threatening to displace local fishermen and subtract acres of land from their usual activities. Not willing to surrender, the community begins a resistance struggle to defend their territory.

Nantenaina Lova is a director from Madagascar (1977) who moved to France in 1999 to study Sociology. Returning to his country during the early 2000s, Nantenaina Lova began working as a journalist for «Les Nouvelles». In 2008 he started studying film directing at the Tolouse Ècole Supérieure d’Audiovisuel, graduating with honors.

In 2013 Nantenaina Lova debutted with the documentary feature film Avec Presque Rien… and in the following years he directed movies presented at important movie festivals all over the world.
