Private Project

Can't Go

The Fisherman has a monotonous life that he shares with his father, who is in need of care. The only way the Fisherman expresses himself and breaks the simple circle of his life for a while, is the act of writing. He writes stories and sends them to literature journals and finally takes part in a competition. As the Fisherman’s story wins the first place in the competition and he gets an invitation to the award ceremony, an unexpected hope glimmers that his monotonous life can change for a while. But only he has to leave his father alone for a few days.
