The project is affirmative towards the mentality…

The monotony of everyday life is broken by the arrival of a fish, which suddenly jumps out of the water and gives the duo a fishing lesson they’ll remember… The show at times resembles a videogame as the protagonists carelessly try to capture the fish, forgetting everything else.
