â€œBetween the Devil and the Deep Seaâ€ is a documentary film that documents the troubles and travails of the traditional marine fisher folk from Andhra; to bring into focus, the relationship between environment and the survival of human beings as also their social well-being. And most importantly, the need to do a rethink about high yielding but short sighted methods of development and economics. Continuously combating dangers on the sea, getting little in return due to the exploitation of natural resources by the mechanized trawlers on one side and monetary exploitation by the loan sharks on the other, with an impassive Government which hardly bothers to take a holistic look into the problem, the life of the traditional marine fisher folk is hanging â€œBetween the Devil and the Deep Seaâ€.
