Blanquito lives with his mother in El Matal, a small fishermen's town on the Ecuadorian shore. Unlike most men in his town, he is not a real fisherman, he does not know how to handle a fishnet and he has little interest in learning fishing skills—he feels he does not belong there, and suspects there's something "better" waiting for him elsewhere. Everyday he makes threats of traveling to Guayaquil in search of his "supposed" father, a known politician he has never met.
One day something very unusual happens in town: wooden boxes carried by the tide show up at the shore, containing brick-like plastic-wrapped packages full of cocaine. Blanquito doesn't know that the following days will bring more excitement to him than peaceful El Matal ever did.
Based on real events, Pescador is the latest film from the renowned director of Ratas Ratones Rateros.
After the screening there will be a Q&A with the filmmaker, Sebastián Cordero.
