We will discover through a mosaic of characters with diverse realities, that the people of Lower North Shore have much in common, despite their cultural divide and language barrier. They are particularly keen on striving to ensure the sustainability of their community, and to ensure that their way of life is maintained and past on, even in the face of increase migration.
“Coasters” is a journey back in time, a return to a way of life marked by an extraordinary simplicity and community spirit, forced by the isolation of the land. Through a full cycle of seasons, the documentary portrays an unfamiliar reality that may unfortunately be doomed to disappear.
