A serenely intimate portrait of three generations of Japanese diving women, their mothers and grandmothers whose delicate bodies transform underwater into those of sea hunters. The ama-san’s way of life dates back 2,000 years and their mysterious rituals seemingly come from such a faraway and dreamlike past. Showing their spirituality, their reverence for nature, their courage and a strong sense of community, this is an extraordinary documentary about women's power and the way that is channelled, in the sea and on land.
