Born and raised in Qatar—a small middle eastern country that developed from a fishing village that depended on pearl diving—into an international powerhouse with an ambition to be at the forefront of international politics, health, education, and sport. Those hopes and aspirations brought about many challenges and unique circumstances that tested the country's capabilities and perseverance. The lead character talks about his homeland, the culture, its ambition and reflects on how this has shaped his life starting from his passion for the ocean where his ancestors made their living, to his pursuit of self-improvement and ability to overcome significant challenges. The sport of spearfishing is one of the most dangerous extreme sports in the world and the "Jodari Meno" is its most valued prize. Along the way, he sheds light on the spearfishing lifestyle and the amazing community of mentors and friends that helped him along his journey. He travels to different countries pursuing the wisdom and knowledge of the sports' legends and goes on to create his own epic story.
