This experimental animation expresses the inner conflict of a migrant as they try to adjust to a new place. The fish represents growth and development just like a baby develops in the womb. As it discovers a new world, it becomes a new-born baby. It struggles at first and finds it dark and frightening but after some time it feels tranquility and adapts to living in the outside world.
