One boy,  a drifting island, and a restless sea.

Far from land at the height of a great storm a baby boy is snatched from his mother by the sea. Many years later a young man is washed up on a drifting raft island. To the people he is a welcome fishing omen bringing with him an abundant catch. Waves of fish follow the boy and the raft people stir with a greed that becomes insatiable. The people are not who he thought they were and the boy begins to fear for his life and for the sea.

"Red Leap’s physical storytelling smarts, deep imagination, and stunning design this time creates a world above, and below the ocean, that you can’t keep your eyes off." James Wenley, Theatrescenes

"An exquisitely crafted menagerie of sea creatures that are brought to life in finely choreographed sequences." Paul Simei-Barton, NZ Herald
