La Barra is a small village, lost on the borderline between the ocean shore and the wall of the jungle. The space is filled with silence, contrasted with the sound of ocean waves, singing birds, and buzzing insects. Unfortunately, this natural barrier fails to separate the village, inhabited by dark-skinned people, from the outer world that is gradually invading their peaceful life. And this is exactly the place to be found Daniel, a white male, who is escaping the world and his current way of life.
Crab Trap tells a story about a clash of two different realities, where tradition meets modernity, and about the conflicts that result from the lack of understanding and failure to accept otherness.
