What is the film about?

An old man is torn between the lingering presence of his dead wife, a fish in a jar and the reality of his lonely existence.

A little background information...

It started out as a film about Alzheimers. Then it met another film about a man who buried his fish in a toilet bowl. Together they walked and ran into some childhood trauma’s of death.

How was the film was made?

It’s mostly pretty straight forward stop-motion. Some shots were done outside, and since people keep asking: the water is hair gel.
