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.
