Home at Dawn

Fredy Guardia is a 75-year-old fisherman and poet. For six decades, he has taken his boat out on the ocean near Lima, Peru, to bring home the daily catch—to Sonia, his wife and partner in one of the city’s best-loved ceviche restaurants. “Home at Dawn” is Guardia’s meditation on a life at sea, the power of memory, and the tragedy of dwindling ocean resources.
