Blustery nights, dreamy days at the beach and by the sea, the enchantment of the underwater world. The life of old beachcomber Jonas in hand-painted animations, combined with photography and simple digital elements. Since childhood, Jonas dreams of a life among the fish and constructs bizarre installations to realise the impossible. The village fishermen look on inquisitively in this melancholy narration about a tragic hero who knows time is short.
