Synopsis: 

This neo-realist tale of a 16-year-old orphan traveling from his Chira Island home in search of a father who may not exist gives plenty of reasons to despair, yet there is something in Puerto padre, in its quiet integrity, in its belief in self-determination, that keeps urging us to hope for the best.
