After spending weeks traveling with a pod of humpback whales, Martina returns home to the Panamanian coasts full of curious facts, a lot of photos, and the need to share everything she has learned. But Martina landed miles away from her home and must now travel through the mangroves and salt beds of the River Santa Maria estuary.
After hours of walking under the sun and heat, Martina soon finds a little house where to rest. Looking around Martina soon finds a forest of sticks, with strings tied between them, on which fish and shark filets blow in the wind like flags.
This is how Martina meets Francisco, an old fisherman with skin like cured leather, who teachers Martina about a family tradition that is older than the country they live in.
