"Peter, Santiago and Ahab are fishermen through and through. The sea is the place where they spend their lives. Still, they have dreams of other places and when the sea is gentle the fishermen talk of those fantasies--of sand dunes and camels, of hot-air balloons high up in the clouds, of fields full of rainbow-coloured tulips ... a sum that would allow them to achieve their life dreams. But the fisherman realize it is impossible to imagine their life without the water and the sound of the seagulls overhead --- and they need to return their special catch back to the freedom of its own watery world." --
