Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
12-year-old Jamaican boy, Lloyd, is searching for his beloved grandfather, a fisherman who is lost at sea. Lloyd suspects that his grandfather has witnessed an illegal capture of dolphins for the tourist trade and that he has come to harm. Interspersed with Lloyd's quest on land and sea is a second voice -- of the grandfather himself. Marooned on a rock, he describes his life growing up in a rural fishing village in a long-gone era.
