About the Film
An old fisherman has spent his entire life searching for the biggest fish in the Danube. It is the only thing left that makes his life worth living; the powerful urge to catch it before he dies. Every sunrise sees the old fisherman attempting to lure the river giant by clapping on the river surface with a hand-carved piece of wood. Two protagonists—one on the surface of the water and the other concealed within the depths of the mighty river—are waiting to finally meet.
