Lost in life and suffering from severe eczema, which turns her skin into fish scales, Sarah travels to see her father whom she hardly knows. Their bad relationship makes her unable to open up to him about her problems. While on a boat trip together out at sea, Sarah dives into the water. In despair and unable to communicate, she tries to find an escape. She finds freedom in the sea.

Director's Statement With Fish I wanted to address a young woman's depression. Instead of making her find the affection she needs so deeply from a person like her father I let her find it in nature - the sea. Fish speaks about miscommunication between family members, how sometimes it is not possible to reunite despite the effort and how an attempt at reunion can be profoundly painful in itself.
