Australian authorities apprehended over 200 Indonesian fishing boats and made over 3,000 arrests at a cost of millions. Media reports generally focus on the reasons for detention, not why the fishermen were there in the first place. Writer/director John Darling, who has lived in Indonesia for 14 years, gives a comprehensive background on who these fisherman are and how they have become ensnared in contemporary issues of territorial water, fishing zones, quarantine, customs and environmental concerns.
