Tiger sharks might be the most misunderstood creatures who ever roamed our oceans. To Hamna Hussein, they are her anchor and source of calmness. As Fuvahmulah’s first female dive master she’s leading dives with dozens of these apex predators at once, while battling not only their stigmas but her own – turning prejudice into power. She’s wearing the hijab proudly on land and under water. Hamna is deeply rooted in Maldivian culture and especially her island’s traditions. She has became a symbol for perseverance and strength. This film is an ode to everyone who reclaims their place in the world.
