Garcia says his job was made easier because Nazario wrote a tight piece to begin with. When I read it, I found it to be a compelling adventure story, he says. It is action-packed, about lives lived by passion, survival, pain and love. His challenge was to find the best way to interpret the strength of the material already laid out in front of him. You have to do a good job to tell the story of all these people who didnt make it, he solemnly notes.
