Love, Cruelty and Revenge.
A fisherman catches himself a wife, and so begins this charming love story. The Inconsequential Lives of Little Fish is an unlikely romance set in a world filled with corruption and greed.
With two mouths to feed and another on the way, our fisherman takes a job at the helm of a delivery boat headed towards the big city. On the journey a storm wrecks the boat and leaves our couple with an enormous debt. They are conned into bonded labour – the fisherman is trafficked and his wife is put to work in a fish processing factory.
Written by Malcolm Robertson Foundation award recipient Frieda Lee (All His Beloved Children), this is a heartfelt two hander with a dark twist.
