Fish Boy is a teenager facing the challenges of growing up. His problems are especially severe, as he is different from all others: he is half boy, half fish. His drama is set against the background of a seemingly idyllic fishing village, where his father wants to teach him how to become a fisherman. The boy’s struggle with the stigma of rejection takes place in several dimensions of interpersonal relationships. Ultimately, it also affects Fish Boy’s relationship with himself.
Tomasz Popakul (1986) graduated from the Arts High School in Szczecin, with a specialisation in printmaking.
