Domino effect
They are called the fish-people because of their extraordinary diving skills and the fact that they hardly ever leave the sea. But the life of the Badjao people, who reside along the coasts of Borneo and nearby islands of the Philippines, has been changing in a dramatic and irreversible way. Dominika Kulczyk and the crew of TVN will present the story of the 12-member family of Mahlinan and Sofina that lives traditionally on a boat. You will see the life in shanty towns that more and more ‘sea nomads’ are moving to when they are unable to sustain their maritime lifestyle. Also in the episode, people involved in helping the Badjao community will be featured, as will be those in dire need of help, i.e. street children whose parents are not able to sustain them and look after them. We kindly invite you to watch the episode available in Polish at:,1991/odcinek-5,S02E05,50663.html
