Meet Peter Halmay, a charming, comedic story-teller with over 40 years of oceanic diving experience. Follow Pete and his deckhand Kenny through a day-in-the-life of a commercial sea urchin diver, and discover what goes on behind the scenes to bring that spiny creature from the sea floor to your dinner plate. This vibrant, character-driven nature film documents and brings awareness to the red sea urchin business in San Diego, California, emphasizing the beauty of southern California's kelp beds, the passionate life of an urchin diver, and the consumption of these spiny creatures in markets and restaurants. The ideas of collaborating to conserve the coastal environment through locally co-managing fisheries and "buying local" serve as overlying messages.
