My big fish must be somewhere.

The animated short film “Fish for Life” draws inspiration from Ernest Hemingway’s classic novel, “The Old Man and the Sea.” This poignant adaptation explores a relatable theme found in everyday life: the struggle faced when individuals reach a point where progress seems unattainable. It portrays the human tendency to persist in the pursuit of an impossible goal, often burdening oneself with an overwhelming weight. The initial determination gradually transforms into an all-consuming obsession, pushing individuals to their breaking point. “Fish for Life” skillfully captures this universal dilemma that resonates deeply within society’s fabric.
