Holidays and the sea seem to be inseparable. But the beach is not always a place for leisure. For many people it is the beginning - or the end - of a sadly decisive journey. This is not the case for Oliver, a boy who, playing with the sand in Mallorca, finds something...
Bees, an essential part of the ecosystem, are seriously under threat. The Balearic Islands are no exception, and this film reminds us of it by explaining their importance, the diversity of species and their impact on the environment. A necessary, local documentary.

The history of cinema in Menorca has names and surnames. One of the most outstanding is Tiago Florit, a film operator who for years illuminated the Teatre Principal in Maó and, also, the dark past of a country kidnapped by a dictatorship. A beautiful animated documentary.
