There are situations that seem desperate. Existences that go on in the greyness of a suffocating and repetitive everyday life. Every day the same scenario, the same boredom, the coldness of a house in which there is no love. The imagination that inhabits this curious and intelligent little fish’s head creates dreams of the outside world and eventual escape from the confining life in a fishbowl, trying to drown out the sameness of life. Everything seems condemned to an endless monotony... until the unthinkable happens. An incredible encounter that shakes the desperate little fish’s life and put wings to his dreams. A story full of fantasy that teaches us not to surrender to despair, even when we do not see a way out. A surprise ending that leaves us with a smile.
This deeply meaningful short, age- and timeless story inspired by the two memoirs Destination: Freedom and Definition of Freedom is a reflection of Lily’s Life in a foreign country.
Fishy’s desperate desire for freedom, a circle of loving friends and a caring family, the feeling of belonging somewhere and of being accepted and integrated, is what many refugees/immigrants feel and struggle with. Some struggle, just for a while, but others for their entire lives. But, as they say, there is always light at the end of the tunnel and this story, with a happy ending, is a good lesson, to never give up on hope, faith, dreams, goals, wishes, and desires, despite the challenging obstacles, of destiny and our selfish, elbow-society!
