Jesmark, a Maltese fisherman, contends with a newfound leak in his wooden Luzzu boat. Barely getting by, he sees his livelihood—and a family tradition from generations before him—imperiled by diminishing harvests, a ruthless fishing industry, and a stagnating ecosystem. Desperate to provide for his wife and their newborn son, whose growth impediment requires treatment, Jesmark gradually slips into an illicit black-market fishing operation.

«Luzzu is an earnest, neorealistic Maltese fishing drama and a touching tale of personal sacrifice which never succumbs to sentimentality.» Sight&Sound
