The Fish

Christoph N. Nagel, Denmark, 1999

12 min.DK/Short fiction

The young fisherman, Hinnerk, catches an intelligent and talking fish. The fish finds life in the water very boring and asks Hinnerk to take him to his home. At home the fish snatches Hinnerks body, so that they transform into a fish-man. The boring days of the sea are over and now is the time to experience life on dry land. This turns out a whole lot different from what the fish expects.
