This thrilling, inspiring, and action-packed journey follows filmmaker Rob Stewart as he exposes the massive illegal shark fin industry and the political corruption behind it -- a conspiracy that is leading to the extinction of sharks. From West Africa, Spain, Panama, Costa Rica, France, and even in our own backyard, Stewart’s third film dives into the often-violent underworld of the pirate fishing trade to expose a multi-billion dollar industry. Shark finning is still rampant; shark fin soup is still being consumed on an enormous scale; and endangered sharks are being used to make products for human consumption. Stewart’s mission is to save the sharks and oceans before it’s too late. But exposing illegal activities isn’t easy; protecting sharks has earned him some powerful enemies.

Directed by Rob Steward (Canada, 2018, 87 min.) 

Post-screening discussion feat. Sandy and Brian Stewart (Producers/Rob's Parents) & Brock Cahill (Member of Team Sharkwater/Founder of The SeaChange Agency). Special Closing Night Reception will immediately follow
