Off the coast of Georgia, two brothers come of age on the barrier island Sapelo in the last remaining enclave of the Saltwater Geechee people. Their greatest joy is exploring the island like their adoptive mother and Sapelo's matriarchal griot, Cornelia Walker Bailey, did as a child. Cornelia works to preserve what remains of this unique community, while shepherding her young sons through their complicated youth.


Nick Brandestini directed DARWIN (SFF 2012) and CHILDREN OF THE ARCTIC (SFF 2015).
