A Gift for Abuelo is the poignant and beautiful journey of a young boy who honors his grandfather by protecting the endangered Olive Ridley turtles that nest on the beach near his home.
Eleven year-old Hericel lives with his family on the Pacific Coast of Oaxaca, Mexico. He is looking for a gift to honor his grandfather on Day of the Dead, an annual fiesta honoring loved ones who have died. His journey immerses viewers in traditions and lifestyle of Mexican culture and reveals the transformative power in harmonious coexistence with the natural world.
