Marino is a film that aims to shed light on the sacrifices and triumphs brought about by overseas employment, experienced particularly by seafarers.
Benjo is a 30-year-old husband and father who has been working as a seaman for the past seven years. He is about to embark on yet another journey as a seafarer.
Life on the ship is set. Professional kinship is developed as common aspirations and perils define life on board. Amidst the call of duty, the rudiments, difficulties and hazards of being a seaman, with his simple and noble acts of heroism are shown. Sea pirates, sunken ships, sexually transmitted diseases, foreign employment are among many issues that beset the job.
The seamans life of tested fidelity, hope and faith is chronicled as the shipmates rid themselves of loneliness, each seaman navigates his way through his own journey. Benjos bunkmate gets into a brutal accident. Another seaman struggles with his sexual identity, and another seaman, reminds Benjo of his happy-go-lucky brother who became a single dad too soon. Despite their differences, friendships between these seamen are developed.
After several months on his most recent voyage in the ship, Benjo gets an emergency call from his wife, Mina to inform him that her ill father just passed away. Deeply affected by the death of his father-in-law who was a second father to him, Benjo sadly informs his wife that he cant come back for his father-in-laws funeral. He reminds his wife, however, that sacrifices that he makes, he does for the good of the family.
Marino is a film that focuses on the individual lives of a seafarer husband and a grieving wife, separated by physical distance, learning to cope with the situation despite the length of time apart from each other, gasping in the depths of loneliness, uncertainty and fear, surging in the waves of hope, and never letting go.
