Fish is an adventure story about the journey of a family of aid-workers, as they and their child, Tiger, flee from a country beset by drought and war. Just before the family leave, Tiger finds a fish struggling for life in a drying-up puddle - and decides that they have to save it. And so they set off on a dangerous journey, across the mountains - the fish's precarious grip on survival mirroring their own.
