Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Seemingly a story of a teenage farmboy who has come to the river to fish, this wordlessfilm takes on a deeper meaning, opening out into an allegory on humans and their relationship to the environment. It makes the point that we must understand the delicate natural balance before attempting to interfere with it.
