‘The Mosquito Coast’
The Mosquito Coast is one of the original series in which Apple TV + has been working hard in recent times. This story is based on the homonymous novel by the writer Paul Theroux, same that this year meets its 40th anniversary of being published to eventually become one of his best-selling iconic works.
The plot will tell us the life of Allie Fox, a brilliant inventor whose ideals have led him to be a staunch critic of the consumerism, culture and the American way of life in general. In a chance of fate, the government of that country pursues him and he undertakes a journey with his family through Mexico and other nations to reach the Mosquito Coast, located in the coastal areas of Nicaragua and Honduras. There, he tries to settle down and lead a different life.
