There is just something so poignant about family-driven stories like the one told in “Old Marine Boy”. A man and his family escape from North Korea and in order to put food on the table that man puts on a 60kg wetsuit every day and goes deep-sea diving. It’s a difficult living, especially when there is one cord connecting him to life-sustaining air meters and meters above the deep where he works. But he roughs the work every day and carves out a life for his family.
